Pow­er­ful women

Fairlady - - YOUR SAY -

I found the ‘Power to the peo­ple’ fea­ture [Septem­ber 2018] of great in­ter­est and a MUST-read for all South Africans. My hearti­est con­grat­u­la­tions to these two won­der­ful women, Makoma Lekalakala and Liz McDaid. We South Africans must praise them and their teams for their watch­ful eye on Par­lia­ment and the gov­ern­ment. Had the nu­clear deal been signed off, it would have been a com­plete dis­as­ter for SA, fi­nan­cially and en­vi­ron­men­tally.

Ed: We couldn’t agree more. We’re all about cel­e­brat­ing ex­cep­tional South African women, so keep read­ing!

His­tory comes alive

Thank you for ‘From France to Fran­schhoek’ [Sept 2018], about Kate Mosse’s new novel se­ries. The nar­ra­tive about our coun­try’s rich his­tory has be­come a bit wa­tered down and these books, I’m sure, will help spark an in­ter­est in peo­ple to do their own re­search. I can’t wait to read them and muse on whether one of my an­ces­tors might have known the char­ac­ters.

Ed: We love that she high­lights women in her sto­ries – as she says, we’re so of­ten left out of the his­tory books.
