It’s Women’s Day tomorrow, and of course, August is the month that South Africa celebrates womenhood. This year, FINESSE magazine has come up with an innovative way of honouring South Africa’s women: it has created three different covers for its August edition in what is a first for South Africa.
The winner of FINESSE’s Inspirational Woman 2011, Helen Zille, appears on the one cover and the runner-ups, Lindie Strydom and Carike Keuzenkamp, on the other two.
FINESSE readers had the opportunity to choose a winner from a group of 10 formidable South African women. Photos of these top 10 candidates appears in the August issue of FINESSE, with a special section where each of the women talks about dealing with various obstacles, personal experiences and how to live your life to the full.
There are 30 500 of each cover in circulation.
