Choosing SA: Not in my name

Kay Sexwale asks: Why do we stay silent and continue to watch the further destruction of the movement (ANC)? Or do we have an uprising from within, shouting not in my name?

The baton is ours now

My view is that the gift of gratitude we can give to the generation that put us on the pedestal of hope is to take the baton and finish the race by healing the divisions of the past. Key to doing so is achieving equal access to wealth, work and well-being, writes Thuli Madonsela.

What good leadership looks like

When there is greater gender and racial diversity in leadership, there is not one way of being, seeing or doing to which everyone needs to conform, writes Mamokgethi Phakeng.

Women are proclaiming: ‘We belong here!’

Delecia Davids writes that women belong on concrete walls with fancy lettering. The time has come for men and their systems to extend the necklace of reconciliation when renaming buildings, memorials and other public spaces.

A call for gender equality, safety and freedom

We have to redouble our efforts to promote the inclusion of women in the economic mainstream of our country. We need equal pay for equal work, as well as equal access to career advancement in all sectors, says Maite Nkoana-Mashabane.
