Celebrating As Essays Of Africa Turns Two!
My friend, Karabo Seloane, was recently been published under Essays Of Africa magazine’s guest blog and when he received the invitation, he asked that I be his plus one.
As his extra, he had forgotten to inform me that the event had a theme. To say I was underdressed is an understatement. The moment I entered The Shed at Steyn City, I realised that everybody had made an effort to subscribe to the specified dress code, except me that is.
I was very impressed and I loved being around so many women, who seemed thrilled to be there. Sometimes society conveys the belief that women exist for the pleasure of others, and that what she wears or how she chooses to behave should be purely for the satisfaction of men. I was truly appreciative of a celebration by women, for women and of women.
