about

Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Diana King lends her efforts to eliminating violence against women and girls.

On 25th November 2013, Imkaan came together with the Pacific Islands Safety and Prevention Project (The Project) in Aotearoa (New Zealand) to reiterate our call for equality and for the elimination of violence against women and girls. We have chosen to use Purple Butterflies as the symbol of this collaboration.

Imkaan’s Executive Director, Marai Larasi shared this via her Twitter page, and internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Diana King watched our videos discussing the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Following this, Diana has chosen to donate her song "Bruises" from her latest album "Agirlnameking" to Imkaan and The Project, as a way to support our cause. She says:

"As an artist, you live for those moments when your soul speaks and there’s no questioning why you are about to do something. This was what happened when I visited Imkaan's website through a post on Marai's Twitter page. I watched the videos discussing the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and immediately something ignited in me because this cause is also my cause. I have 9 sisters who are now women, and all of us have suffered violent abuse as girls. Sadly it continues among more than a few of us. The wounds left never seem to heal and affects our self worth daily. I wanted to do something and it’s an honour to contribution my song "Bruises" written for an abused friend. This is one of the most natural things I've ever done. It simple just felt good and right. Elimination is better than cure."

The staff at Imkaan and The Project are truly honoured, inspired and overwhelmed by Diana’s generosity and commitment to equality.

Big up Diana King! ♥
