In response to complaints, including one by Sonke, the South African Breweries Ltd (SAB) has decided to withdraw its “Grootman of Laaitie” advert, together with the “Bigger is better” Carling Black Label advert, which it outlines in this release.
Sonke is a South African-based non-profit organisation working throughout Africa. We believe women and men, girls and boys can work together to resist patriarchy, advocate for gender justice and achieve gender transformation.
