New magazine celebrates women

Lady, a new magazine which proclaims the value of female empowerment and celebrates the achievements of remarkable Guyanese women, was officially launched on June 18.

Its first bi-monthly edition features women from various socio-cultural backgrounds who would have conquered numerous obstacles in their struggle towards success. A woman’s choice between her family or career, between an abusive relationship and her need to keep up appearances are just a few experiences recounted by some of the featured women in Lady.

The magazine which is free of charge has among its featured women Presidential Advisor Gail Teixeira, fighter Nazalena Houston and Makeup Artist Reneé Thompson.

It also showcases fashion, beauty and food. Publisher Anita Balram said she hopes the magazine will be a vision of empowerment for all the women who read it. She said that while it must be acknowledged that there are many difficulties that women face, she believes women must glorify what they have achieved or what they are capable of. According to her, the magazine aims to continue to be free of charge to ensure wider circulation.

Editor Tivia Collins related that the idea for the magazine was conceptualised by Adrian Pryce, Marketing Representative at Inspire Inc, who then built a team comprising herself and Creative Director Mensah Fox. She said, “We also hope to bring awareness to issues affecting women, issues that may have gone silent but still exist.”

Lady can be found in banks across Guyana as well as Austin’s Bookstore, Giftland Office Max and Oasis Café.
