Women's issues in Limpopo will no longer be in the background following the launch this week of a magazine that deals with issues affecting them.

The black-owned magazine, titled Labella, will bring women's issues into the public domain for debate and scrutiny. The magazine is the brainchild of entrepreneur Patty Kgobe.

Kgobe has been in the media industry for about 10 years and has what it takes to tackle women's issues.

The magazine will also focus on other social issues.

At the launch of the province's first-ever women's magazine in Polo-kwane on Tuesday, guests were treated to a wild celebration of the beginning of a new era.

The magazine is run by a team of hard workers, creative and goal-driven women who are striving for success.

"It is a magazine with a feminine touch of class, which is 100percent owned by black women," said Kgobe in an interview with Sowetan.

"Labella will be using this medium to talk about women empowerment. It is a magazine that focuses on issues affecting women, men in business, careers, relationships, politics and community news."

Norah Rapotu, who delivered the keynote address, talked about love and care for oneself as a woman.

"It is important as a woman to take good care of yourself and your loved ones," Rapotu said.

"Congratulations to the courageous women who saw it fit to focus on women's issues.

"But remember, mistakes are part of life and don't ever regret or give up," she added.

Labella falls under Batswala Advertising Media, a black-owned company headed by Kgobe.
