This edition marks the end of the 2014 publishing year for us at exPress imPress. The team will now move on to pay full attention to final examination preparations. Here’s wishing them all the best for this period!

All in all 2014 was a great year for our blog. Apart from the wide variety of articles that we were able to publish, our blog grew in leaps and bounds resulting in increased site visits. We would thus like to say a quick but very significant thank you to all our readers who visit our site and engage with the content we put out. We aim to be back as soon as possible once university opens again in 2015.

Before we leave, we have an exciting edition lined up today. Looking closer, in Express – Current Affairs we have Ntombifuthi looking at recent plans by some companies to offer their female employees the opportunity to freeze their eggs. We also have Sandiswa looking at Black Economic Empowerment while Sibongile reflects on some of the big South African news stories of the year.

In Impressions – My Diary we have Ahmed reflecting on his first year as a student at university while Sandiswa discusses why she thinks grades during the education process are not everything.

Finally, in Impressing – Entertainment and Lifestyle Genesis talks to us about her mixtape The Colour of Reign. We also have Tsholofelo looking at reality television. Enjoy!

Wishing you well,

Viraj

It is in our blog meetings that we as a team inspire each other to write and put out new editions as often as we can. As a result of a public holiday last week that fell on the day when the blog team usually meets, there were limitations when it came to putting together this week’s edition of our blog.

Nonetheless we have a small but fascinating edition for you. Our writers engage with a variety of issues including the abuse of tax money, Oscar Pistorius murder trial analysis as well as an introduction to a new sport that seems to be all the rage currently.

Looking closer at the edition, we have Ahmed looking at an upcoming event in the Ultimate Frisbee Community in Impressing – Entertainment and Lifestyle. While in Express – Current affairs we have Ntombi looking at the wastage of tax money and what she feels it could be better spent on while Sandiswa discusses her issues with some of the analysis seen about the Oscar Pistorius murder trial.

Enjoy!

Until next time,

Special edition: Gender and South Africa

by admin

eiToday marks the start of September as well as the start of spring in South Africa. However, today also marks the end of South African Woman’s month that took place all through August. Woman’s month came about as a result of the historic march by South African women of all races that took place on the 9th of August 1956. The march was in protest of the pass laws of the time that required Black South Africans to carry a pass with them at all times. Led by Lillian Ngoyi, Sophia Williams, Rahima Moosa and Helen Joseph, the march of an estimated 20000 women left petitions protesting the pass laws at the South African Union building in Pretoria.

In honor of this historic event as well as Woman’s month we have decided to put out a special edition on gender and South Africa. Much like our previous special edition on the South African elections, in this edition our writers all write about gender and South Africa in whatever way they interpret the topic. This then allows them to discuss issues they feel strongly about in relation to the topic. As a result our writers touch on a variety of issues within gender and South Africa for your enjoyment.

Looking at the edition, we have Jane discussing her issues with Polygamy, Ntombifuthi discussing the traditional practice of ukuthwala while Sandiswa looks at womanhood and motherhood and how the two don’t have to always go together. We also have Simlindile reflecting on woman’s month as a whole while Tsholofelo looks at being a woman in South Africa. Finally, we have Zanethemba who looks at the issue of Black women and hair in South Africa.

Enjoy!

Until next time,

Viraj
