Look Out for Our Magazine
About the Publication
This publication, was first born in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa. An educated man raped his sister’s daughter. The culture said that the niece was a ‘little wife’, not in sexual terms. That mother appealed to a small group of women, and I was one of them, to produce a magazine on rape, and in this way “Issues – Pane Nyaya” (Issues: We have stories to tell) was born.
With Issues Guyana, we want people in the Caribbean and internationally, to read, hear and understand that much of the fear, anger and violence crosses continents and is present everywhere in our global village. We take the stance that culture is not static and therefore requires that we change, shift perspectives, rethink and redefine what we see and label as “tradition” and/or “acceptable”.
