Welcome to the August edition of The Journalist

August has a particular significance in the life of South Africa. It is the month in which we honour the women who marched against the extension of Pass Laws to African women in 1956. And it is also the month of darkest event of our democracy – the Marikana massacre of 2016.

We therefore have contributions which reflect on both the triumphs and the challenges facing women today as well as the spotlighting the ongoing struggles for social justice as the Covid 19 pandemic exposes our inequalities.

Some of these are original pieces and some are from new networks of community journalists who delve into events that the media mainstream fails to engage.

In addition to spotlighting Women’s Month the August edition has a great collection of articles, including on the arts, on our pioneer journalists and a longer academic feature on student struggles in the campaign to end outsourcing.
