Hats and Heels - the event - coincides with the commencement of Women's Week 2020. It is an inspirational luncheon with local guest speakers who will explore the organisation's mission of "women empowering women". The speakers will focus on women empowerment, domestic violence and the International Women's Day and Women's Week 2020 theme - "I Am Generation Equality: Realising Women's Rights". This annual luncheon event is one of the organisation's initiatives to raise funds for the operations of S.A.F.E. (Stop Abuse For Everyone) a domestic hotline, which is currently live and is expected to be operational by July of this year.
Hats and Heels is a non-profit organisation with a profound passion for the sisterhood among women. Its mission is "women empowering women" through trust, passion, investment and commitment. With the passage of the Domestic Violence Bill, the organisation felt it was imperative to establish a women's hotline (an outlet for persons affected by domestic violence) in order to create an environment where women in our community can lead safe lifestyles.
The Social Security Board commends the bold initiative of the Hats and Heels organisation for the establishment of a women's hotline (S.A.F.E), and extends best wishes for a successful event.
