Is it only the “Nasty Woman” who can break the glass ceiling?
Is it only the “Nasty Woman” who can break the glass ceiling?

Gender inequality at work remains an issue for women across all industries - not only in South Africa but on a global scale. Women work twice as hard for half the recognition while juggling families; they are still paid less for positions of equal status to men; and to this day there is still a pervasive presence of “a boy's club” in many organisations. Ashley Judd's passionate and fiery “Nasty Woman” speech delivered at the DC Women's March earlier this year [January 2017] - the largest public rally for women's rights in recent history - is evidence that women are becoming increasingly more vocal against this disparity - and rightly so.

A reimagined approach is needed to solve South Africa's social ills
A reimagined approach is needed to solve South Africa's social ills

Save your preaching for someone else. Today's audiences are much more complex and smarter than you think and will not respond to prescriptive ways in order to change behaviours. For years, I grew observing how we socially interacted and address matters of contention in my community and our country at large, many of which affected us in ways we could not even imagine possible. Needless to say, the results have not always been great because of the approach that has been taken and applied in solving them.
