TRUE LIFESTYLE | Highlighting women’s all-important role


Tough and fragile. Strong-willed but have a soft spot for those who have less. High profile, icons in their own right yet ready to take on unpopular advocacy positions.

These are just some of the qualities of women that we celebrate today. Exceptional women who take centerstage this March as we celebrate the International Women’s Month. And what a better way to highlight their all-important role in society – at least in the local setting – than to launch a timely TV magazine show, indeed, a welcome addition to our viewing fare, on Sky Cable Channel 53, YouTube and Facebook at 8 p.m. every Saturday.
