For Women’s month in 2019 HYPE undertook a campaign with the Tears Foundation and TBWA Hunt Lascaris to highlight victim blaming. Titled #BlameNoMore, it harnessed the influence of HYPE magazine to spread awareness around gender-based violence. Editor Rudzani Netshiheni conducted panel discussions with dancer and choreographer Tarryn Alberts, singer and songwriter Shekhinah and musician, actress, TV host and entrepreneur Boity. A cover shoot was done featuring these influential women and the campaign became a great success.
