“After a powerful Womxn’s Day, and as we hit the midway mark for Womxn’s Month, I find myself thinking about the poetic power of female agency in both the arts and business – the womxn architects and creative engineers who are re-shaping the very fibre and fabric of the world as we know it,” says Business and Arts South Africa head of marketing, Savannah Feeke, in the latest BASA Bulletin newsletter.
“History has always allowed for imperfect men and their mistakes, but all too often, the same leeway has rarely been afforded to powerful women. The truth is that we are living in a time where the agency of powerful womxn, those I like to call Rebel Girls, is re-shaping the business landscape of South Africa’s creative economy. Through this month, I come with the expectation to see the self-expression and influence of generations of Rebel Girls.”
CN&CO believes very strongly in the inclusivity of women in our business, in our personal lives, and in society in general. Check out some of the power-women we have featured on our blog so far this Women’s Month:
- The Company We Keep: Lisa Henry
- Facebook’s role in Brexit – and the threat to democracy
- Featuring SA rowers Kirsten MacDonald & Ursula Grobler
- Celebrating Women on Women’s Day
- Insurance news-wrap: Women’s Day edition
- A letter delivered, a story told
Savannah’s message resonates strongly with us. The BASA newsletter goes on to feature a number of women doing amazing things in the arts sphere. These include Nandi Dlepu, Tumy Motsoatsoe, Koleka Putuma and Gabrielle Goliath.
