She Brigade is a platform that aims to empower through storytelling.
One person’s story can impact thousands. Through the platform we aim to act as the tool that allows women from everywhere to share their stories and to start the conversations that will help other young women know that they can overcome what ever challenges they face.
The name She Brigade stems from the idea that when women stand together as a unit or brigade there are endless opportunities and possibilities that can be unlocked.
On the podcast “She Brigade In Conversation”, host and founder, Pelontle Mosimege, sits down with women from different backgrounds in different careers as they share their stories and journeys that have led them to being who they are today.
We want to make African women’s stories known and accessible to everyone around the world.
About the Founder
24 year old Pelontle Mosimege founded She Brigade in June of 2017.
Originally from Mafikeng, She has an Honours Degree in Informatics from the University of Pretoria and works as a Business Analyst.
One of Pelontle’s life mottos is ‘Be who you needed when you were younger‘. Her small town upbringing is how she noticed the lack of access that young women have to hearing the different stories, success stories, of women that she could possibly relate to and be inspired by. That and her passion for women empowerment drove her to start She Brigade as an accessible local platform that showcases (among other things) the stories of women from different walks of life in South Africa.
Her goal is to empower women everywhere by inspiring them through storytelling .
