Nissan SA and Cosmopolitan have teamed up to raise awareness against gender-based violence

This summer just became a whole lot hotter! Nissan have teamed up with Cosmopolitan who will be working with eight male celebrities to raise awareness around gender-based violence against women.

Executive Director of corporate affairs at Nissan SA, Wonga Mesatywa says, “We cannot overcome gender-based violence unless we work together. That’s why we’re proud to stand behind Cosmo as they tackle this important initiative, encouraging men to stand up and speak out against it.”

The Nissan Navara Stealth bakkie combines beauty and physical strength. “The gentleman who have volunteered to participate in the #COSMOMenStandUp campaign epitomise strong masculine men who are also very gentle, much like the Nissan Navara Stealth and this is why we have specifically chosen this model to support Cosmopolitan” adds Wonga.

The all-new Nissan Navara Stealth builds on the Navara name. Not only is it stylish, comfortable and versatile, but tough. It has been designed for men and women who love turning mountains into their playground, turning heads of the public while doing so.

Cosmopolitan editor, Holly Meadows says, “At Cosmo, we recognise that gender-based violence is not a woman’s issue, it’s a human rights issue. We need the men in South Africa to be our allies and stand with us in fighting gender-based violence. This campaign creates a platform for men and boys to engage and become change agents.”

For every vote cast for Cosmo Men Stand Up, R1 will be donated to the HeForShe solidarity campaign. The movement has been set in motion by the United Nations who are encouraging all genders to contribute as change agents.

Music Artists such as Shane Eagle, Nasty C, Matthew Mole and J Something will all be lending their voices to call for an end to toxic masculinity and sexual harassment.

Other personalities have joined the movement too. Thus including photographer Trevor Stuurman, TV presenter Tino Chinyani, actor Nay Maps, cricketer Kagiso Rabada, The Voice SA season 2 winner Craig Lucas, Expresso presenter Thabiso Makhubela as well as #NotInMyName activist Siya Jentile.

It is time for the world to start making changes. Women have as many rights as men and shouldn’t be mistreated or abused. Without women, the world cannot function and labour rights should be advanced. #AllWomenRiseUp
