Dove will once again partner with Hulisani Ravele, for their campaign to empower women, which aims to unpack the challenges women face around self-esteem and beauty in their daily lives. Hulisani Ravele has a lot of personal experience when it comes to self-esteem herself, being a television personality who had to embrace her freckled face, she had to transition into loving herself,  especially in an era where cyberbullying is quite rife.

She embodies all the values that Dove, a multi-national brand is trying to bring awareness around.

In this chapter of their long-running campaign, Hulisani will host record-breaking world champion athlete, Caster Semenya. If there is anyone in South Africa who embodies girl power, it has to be Caster Semenya.

In a Tweet, the television star Tweeted in excitement about what other women could expect.

"Tomorrow I kick-off the #CourageousConversations series! A space where we will shine the spotlight on the continued importance of our mental health and how we can stay mentally fit. My first guest is the phenomenal @caster800m! Tomorrow, 7pm, on my IG Live. #WellnessWednesdays"

Caster, a double Olympic gold medallist and 800m world-record holder, who has been fighting in a long battle to compete despite having higher levels testosterone, recently lost her court case at the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland. The setback comes after the Swiss legal body upheld its position to deny Caster the opportunity to compete unless she takes hormone suppressing drugs.

Hulisani has revealed that this is the first Season of an empowerment talk of this kind and it will continue for 4 weeks, every Wednesday starting tomorrow. Tweeps were extremely excited about the show and seem to be looking forward to the Series.
"YAY! Congratulations, Huli Such an important conversation. How long will the series run for? I want to set an alarm so I don’t miss out."

It is definitely fitting that Caster Semenya be the first guest on the show, she has been through the most when it comes to discrimination for more than over a decade. She has battled and fought to ensure that she always comes out on top, regardless of her circumstances. If her Tweets and character are anything to go by, she is a mentally strong person and her focus is unmatched nor unshakeable.
"Chills my people,A man can change the rules but the very same man can not rule my life,What I'm saying is that I might have failed against them the truth is that I have won this battle long ago,Go back to my achievements then you will understand.Doors might be closed not locked."

We look forward to this Instagram Live tomorrow, will you be tuning in?
