Women’s History Month: The Uncensored Feminist | Siphokazi Veti

Modern day feminism is widely being appreciated just as much as it is being criticized. Women all over the world fighting for their rights. Women fight for their right to be heard as well as their right to proudly exist exactly as they are. They say 2018 is the year of the woman. I say it is the year of the woman who fiercely fights for her right to be understood by a world that constantly chooses to misunderstand her.

Some women are built to face the fire while some are built by that very same fire. Where do you lie?

As we celebrate our own kind this month let us highlight and clap for the few that stand tall and use their voices to celebrate women every single day through everything they do.

To start us off right is feminist, activist, writer and influencer, Siphokazi Veti.

She is better known as the “Uncensored Feminist”. She will not be silenced and her words will live on for years to come.

The South African beauty is not only stunning on the outside but her heart and soul shine brighter than any diamond on earth. Her take on feminism is rebellious! In that she is truly herself without a care of what society thinks of her. She cuts her hair short, wears whatever she pleases and loves herself loudly and unconditionally.

Her social media feed both Instagram and Twitter are filled with constant messages of empowerment and encouragement for each and every female follower.

In my opinion, she is just one face among many of the millennial feminists. Siphokazi urges women to clap for themselves and love the parts of them that nobody claps for. She believes in the power of energy and takes us through her everyday journey to find her perfect balance.

It is this brave attitude Siphokazi Veti has that has attracted brands to work with her. She has had the privilege of working as an influencer for brands such as Woolworths, Gugu intimates and Mr Price South Africa. She makes self-love look worth the effort and fight.

Siphokazi Veti educates women on the importance of self-love. She is a true representation of the wonders brought about by self-appreciation.

This month let us make it a duty to celebrate and get to know empowered women who are busy empowering fellow women.

    Just as Koffi Annan said “There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women”. An empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and goes a long way in architecture of the society. 👏👏👏 This article is more than amazing❤

    Girls need to stick together and stand up for each other.The days of putting each other down are long gone.The world is a better place when the female voice is heard loud and clear when it comes to matters of education and sex all women should be free to do as they please without being criticized.

    4Q: Some women are built to face fire while others are built by the very same fire.where do you lie.
    A:Well I lie in both..Most of us do.Look at it this way.The fire that is difficulties/problems.Some of us are meant to face problems (go through them) while some of us are built by these problems (we grow through them ,they mould us into something better)Most of us face these problems and grow through them❤.The strength of a woman .I could go on and on expanding on all parts of this article but ☺ I’d end up writing a whole book.Bless Trizah NgesaThis article is solid Magic✨💫

    • Zarilyn, you go right ahead and write that book! May you be moulded by that fire into a force to be reckoned with!

My aim is to use jewelry as medium to raise awareness about the positive contribution of women leaders in a resource limited township. anyone who might be interested to make a contribution to research please send me an email @ mantshiyo@gmail.com

    • Thank you Themba!

    Back then women didn’t have a say in what so ever. . Their roles were defined grow up, be prepped for marriage give birth,always support your husband and stand by him… With the rise of women such as Siphokazi we have a voice we can say what we feel without feeling victimised.We can stand on our own without a man validating us and thats power at it’s finest. . We should appreciate such women and empower each other to it’s finest 💛💛
