Nondumiso Sithole, advisory council member at the Inclusive Society Institute (ISI), attended the opening of a new conference facility that hosted by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation (FES). The launching of the new facility held on the 6th of December 2022, at 34 Bompas Road, Dunkeld West.
The FES hosted conference not only challenged its attendees to engage in meaningful conversations on critical matters around issues of social impact such as directly challenging patriarchy but genuinely analysing and exploring the new feminist politics, finding ways to address the issues of intersectional inequalities of race, class, gender and sexuality but generally the progression towards a renewal of progressive projects globally.
The event also took the opportunity to pay honor, tribute and remembrance to a legend and pioneer of the late former Commissioner to the United Kingdom Lindiwe Mabuza. Ms. Mabuza was not only an activist and politician but wore many impressive hats, academic, poet and cultural activist. Ms. Mabuza was a feminist icon in her own right and was a trailblazer in advocating for fighting for women’s right through the use creative arts and her passion in education.
