Marie Claire celebrates powerful women in its August 'Power' issue


Following the ‘Naked’ issue of Marie Claire magazine, the August issue, themed ‘Power’ issue, features lawyer, model, and activist Thando Hopa on the cover and also identifies twelve of South Africa’s Future Shapers.

“It's important for us as the Marie Claire brand to recognise and honour South African women who are doing incredible things. The 'Power' issue offered the perfect platform for us to launch our Future Shapers project, which is a property pioneered by Marie Claire global, and one we plan to continue annually,” says Lynette Botha, features editor of Marie Claire.

The twelve Future Shapers, in association with Audi, are; 
  • actress, presenter, and anti-bullying spokesperson Nicole Bessick
  • Africa’s youngest Neurosurgeon, Ncumisa Lihle Jilata 
  • South African astronaut candidate finalist for the Mars One Project, Dr Adriana Marais 
  • writer and mentor, who previously worked at the United Nations, Dr Sindiwe Magona 
  • founder of Rekindle Learning, Rapelang Rabana
  • director of Umgibe Farming Organics and Training Institute, Nonhlanhla Joye 
  • founder of EMPIRE advertising agency, Lusanda Worsley
  • founder of DreamGirls South Africa, Ezlyn Barends
  • theatre practitioner and poet, Koleka Putuma 
  • creative writer and film-maker, Jessie Zinn
  • film-maker, activist, and community-development worker, Sinazo Peter
  • Marie Claire’s cover star, Thando Hopa, who all reveal why they feature on this list.
Adding to the issue that celebrates powerful women, Magda Wierzycka, CEO of Sygnia, and the wealthiest woman in South Africa, reveals what it takes for women to be at the top of their game, acting as guest editor of Marie Claire’s career section. 


Botha concludes, "We’re incredibly proud of the August issue, and we know that it has the power to impact the lives of our readers for the better. That’s always our aim and it’s what sets us apart on the newsstands."
