impepho press: Holding Space for the Intersectional Feminist Voice of Africa

Vangile Gantsho: “Another thing that brought impepho press together was our commitment to healing in the work we do, individually and I suppose, now as a collective. All three of the founding members hold space and have a vested interest in facilitating dialogue, so that we can be a part of better, healthier communities. Be it through teaching, feminist dialogues, and/or pursuing spiritual callings.
