Annoucement of QFFF 2019
Queer Feminist Film Festival 2019

Queer Feminist Film Festival (QFFF) is making a comeback to Bertha Movie House in Khayelitsha, Cape
Town, on the 24th and 25th of May 2019! Last year’s event was a huge success and, it only made sense
to make do it again.
QFFF is a feminist film festival for the LGBTQIA+ community to come together in celebration of queer
organizing, our experiences and sharing knowledge. And, it's the first of its kind locally!
Through the film festival, we’re working towards engaging and countering the disconnect between
queer and/ or feminist activists, creatives and the broader community. We're here to bring the queer
and/ or feminist community together!

Call for Justice for South Africa's Golden Girl
As we reflect on Workers' Day today, 1 May, it is ironic that one of our most successful athletes’ career hangs in the balance because of the discrimination she has had to endure in the world of sport based on her classification as an intersex person. Socially, her dignity has been targeted on account of her lesbian sexuality and masculine gender expression. From high hopes to shattered dreams! Today we have experienced a major setback in the ‘so-called' era of advancing human rights and respect for diversity, globally.

Dr Barbara Boswell
Letter to the Editorial Board of Aging, Neuropsychology and Cognition

Dear Editors
We write to strongly object to the publication (March 2019) of the article ‘Age- and education-related effects on cognitive functioning in Colored South African women’ by Nieuwoudt, Dickie, Coetsee, Engelbrecht and Terblanche. We ask that you retract it because of its racist ideological underpinnings, flawed methodology, and its reproduction of harmful stereotypes of ‘Coloured’ women.
