  1. I came across your Thought Leader piece on The F Word and it resonates with an essay I wrote while I was doing my Gender Studies degree at UCT. I know work for an NGO that promotes gender equality in the media (Gender Links) and I would love to contribute my thoughts to this necessary and timely project! Will start writing asap. Thank you for this, what a great way to start 2011!


  2. Does anyone know if Vida e Caffe is finally employing women in its shops? I am living overseas but when I lived in Greenside, I spent a fruitless year engaging with Vida’s executive director. He accused me of slander when I asked “where are all the women?” and informed me that employing women on their all-male teams would upset the men’s comraderie and enjoyment at the workplace.


  3. hello Victoria
    Glad to see that someone else noticed! I used to be addicted to Vida lattes (the quality has gone down so not any more) for years and have been to numerous Vidas all over … and have never seen a woman barista. I also raised it with one of the guys (barista, not manager) at the Rosebank branch (my most regular haunt, though I also went to Greenside a lot) and got an answer along the same vein. What bs. My brother has raised the question of how they get past equity legislation and I must say, I do wonder.


  4. It is this kind of writing pieces that fascinates me. To see more women in the writing business its my passion, writing itself its just a hobby. But I will certainly love to contribute to this blog, starting now!
