As International Women’s Day was celebrated on Friday, 8 March, I reported on the global gender pay gap, which is unfortunately still widening and only six countries, all outside Africa, currently give women and men equal rights, according to the World Bank’s ‘Women, Business and the Law 2019’ report. Good news is that SA is currently in the top 20 in the WEF global report on gender equality at the moment, with numerous initiatives underway set to make the 2019 International Women’s Day campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter a reality.

Speaking of reality, Danette Breitenbach has unpacked the ABCs of the fourth quarter of 2018 for both newspapers and magazines – total newspaper circulation declined 1.6% on the previous quarter, which is disappointing given that total circulation was static in the second quarter and up in the first quarter. The magazine freefall also continued, both the quarter and year as percentage decline for both are higher than the other quarters in 2018. The decline of the previous quarter is 8.4%, and 19.7% in the prior year. Financial Mail, Popular Mechanics and Getaway buck this trend.
