It's really sad to watch, Gigi talks about the hatred toward women

Rapper Gigi Lamayne has succumbed to the women-on-women hatred that pervades social media posts, and she has shared her thoughts on the root cause and potential solutions.

Gigi told TshisaLIVE about incidents on her TL where she witnessed women bullying other women.

"I think it's really sad to watch because we need to stick together now more than ever." Gender-based violence (GBV) [is] happening, so many things we're reading about, women being raped in Krugersdorp... surely those should be the conversations we have, actively demanding answers and justice, rather than dragging another woman down."

Gigi made the Twitter trends list earlier this year after ex-friend and reality TV star Inno Morolong made disparaging remarks about her regarding an alleged incident involving a man.

"It's quite sad to see the amount of hate speech women throw at each other on social media platforms daily." Men will convene and organize things like a men's conference to idealize male solidarity, whether it's a joke or not... with women, we're constantly in a courtroom against one another."

Coming into the industry as a woman in a male-dominated industry, Gigi had to break down many barriers. She claims that many women have struggled to stand up for one another because they have been taught that only one woman can take centre stage.

"At times, women struggle to stand together because we were taught that there isn't enough pie for everyone and that there is only one female at a time." It's always been such a taboo subject."

She believes that if women band together, they can effect change.

"Many of our situations are very similar; whether you're in politics, sports, arts or entertainment, or anywhere else, you'll find that the voices of women in politics, sports, arts or entertainment, or anywhere else are very similar."

So women must band together in the same way that men do... changes in one sector will affect the other. Change can often begin with you. Most of the time, we share the same idealistic viewpoints, but if we don't talk about it, there's no way we'll challenge the powers that be."
