Zinhle speaks on the importance of educating young kids about responsibility and communication

DJ Zinhle expressed her excitement and passion for the project. Speaking to Briefly News, she emphasised the significance of providing a space where women could feel safe and truly belong, free from unwanted attention or scrutiny.

"I went to boarding school, and I learned a lot of things from my peers.
"I feel like if I had learned these lessons from my parents, I would have understood better, you know, how to communicate with a girl child, how to make them aware of the environment they are entering.

"I would also have understood the responsibility of going to a place like this and what it means to ensure everyone knows what you are doing," DJ Zinhle shared.

Zinhle and Brutal Fruit Spritzer also shared snaps on Instagram.

Zinhle highlighted the importance of proactive measures for personal safety while enjoying social gatherings. She urged women to take control of their experiences and prioritise their well-being:

"When I go to places like these, I try not to dwell on the possibility of danger but instead focus on planning ahead."

Furthermore, DJ Zinhle raised a critical point about gender dynamics and societal perceptions. She posted a thank-you message later:

"I don't think the boy child is being conscientious enough about respecting women's boundaries, especially where alcoholic beverages are concerned.
"We need to have more conversations about this so that the boy child understands the dangers of putting a woman in an uncomfortable position," she passionately expressed.
