JUBA, 15 May 2012 [Gurtong] – SHE South Sudan, the new women’s magazine that was launched on Saturday in Juba aims at promoting women’s empowerment and development through telling their stories.

The publication’s Managing Director Brigitte Sins said that the magazine targets developing women’s fashion and beauty in South Sudan in the main urban areas.

“The aim of this magazine is to provide information women need and which is taken for granted in societies with an overload of information, but which is lacking in South Sudan. The magazine seeks to entertain the young woman and develop her”, Sins said.

The Deputy Speaker of the South Sudan National Assembly Fatuma Nyawang who graced the ceremony underscored efforts behind establishing the magazine and said it is an additional voice for women to use for claiming their rights.

She urged the magazine editors to get focus on addressing issues such as education of the girl child which she said has been a challenge due to obsolete cultural practices.

“This magazine will act as our gun and we should use it to fight for our rights. It will focus on addressing abuse of women’s rights in the society where women make at least 60 percent of the population”, said Nyawang.

According to the Sudan national census held in 2008, women played a great role by being the main voters during the South Sudan 2010 elections and 2011 referendum.

However, despite their magnitude they compose the largest illiterate population in the country and most marginalised.
