[Skateistan] Get Used to It: A Documentary About Women Skateboarding
Get Used To It is an interactive story about women’s empowerment and skateboarding in South Africa. Travel with us to the opening of a “Skate School” in Johannesburg. Run by Skateistan, an NGO that empowers children through education and skateboarding, the site provides a safe space to learn, grow and land tricks.
Gender inequality is a huge problem in South Africa. The streets of Jo’burg are dangerous, particularly for girls. They face discrimination and the threat of violence on a daily basis. Through skateboarding, Skateistan offers a route to independence, self-discovery and education for all.
