The Sister Namibia magazine is published four times per year and is designed to inspire and equip women to make free choices and act as agents of change in their relationships, their communities, and themselves.
The editorial approach is outlined as communicating openly, honestly, in a respectful and professional manner, as well as providing an opportunity for women to express themselves. It is designed to build readers’ capacity for feminist analysis, generating a greater acceptance of feminist critique among women activists and women in general. The magazine has a wide local and international distribution, through community based and non-profit organisations as well as subscribers.
In this first edition for 2017, “Sisters in Art” focuses and celebrates various Namibian artists,media practitioners and crafts-women. We address the challenges and successes these phenomenal women have experienced and delve into what lies ahead for art in Namibia. Happy reading!
In this final edition for 2016 we take a look at predominantly personal stories by women. Through these – mostly shared in anonymity – we hope you will be motivated in your sphere of influence to be an advocate for gender equality and human rights – as you once again see how each person has a story they may never share in public. Happy reading!
