Milisuthando Bongela is a multi award-winning writer, blogger and collaborator, consultant, social activist and the new editor of Friday, the Mail and Guardian arts section. Born in 1985, she grew with lots of women around her, This is what Milisuthando have to say;
My father was there but he was never heard as much as my mom so I’ve never been in a polarising environment where I had to claim my femininity. I was born into a household with a lot of women and my life generally lacked men. I went to a girls school, stayed in girls res at varsity; my first job was in a women’s magazine.
