Vision & Mission

Vision

The Soul City Institute for Social Justice is an intersectional feminist organisation.

Our vision is to ensure that young womxn and girls fully realise their human rights in a just society and are able to live with dignity and self-determination and have the health and well-being to grow, flourish and reach their full potential.

Mission

We support and amplify young womxn’s feminist consciousness, voice, agency and activism to dismantle patriarchy, protect their rights and enable their self-determination.

We are committed to:

  • Ensuring that young women and girls access resources and opportunities so that they enjoy substantive equality.
  • Promoting a just society where all people share a common humanity, a respect for human rights, and a fair allocation of resources.
  • Catalysing investments that amplify womxn’s voices and build womxn’s movements.
  • the right to equality within the South African Constitution and particularly sections that guarantee the right to bodily integrity and autonomy in the context of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights.

Our vision and mission are in alignment with Agenda 2030 (Global Sustainable Development Goals), the Maputo Protocol to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa, the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development, and with Beijing Plus Twenty and Africa Agenda 2063.

As an intersectional feminist organization, we recognize the multiple and interconnecting oppressions experienced by womxn through supremacies that include race, gender and class.

The SCI is guided by rights to equality within the South African (SA) Constitution, including sections within the Constitution that guarantee all South Africans the rights to bodily integrity and autonomy. In addition, the SCI seeks to promote the enabling provisions for the human rights of womxn and girls as articulated in the Maputo Protocol to the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights on the Rights of Womxn in Africa, the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development, and in alignment with Beijing Plus Twenty and Africa Agenda 2063.
