#BlackWomenMatter in the spotlight this Friday

Written by: Sinikiwe Mqadi

It's all about women this week on the #FridayStandIn.

Social activist, feminist and Soul City Institute for Social Justice chief executive officer, Lebo Ramafoko, says South Africans have not done much to advance the course of women's rights and gender issues.

Do black women's lives matter? Ramafoko says she will tackle the question with two other women who are experienced and well informed on issues relating to girls and women.

I am going to have fun with my guests and that's why I have invited them. It is not only about my experience and what I know. I really forward to also hear how people are doing this year.
