Kate Ferreira is a freelance journalist, writer and editor based in Johannesburg. She has worked in journalism -- and intermittently in communications -- since completing her degree at Rhodes University in 2005, including stints as the online editor of the Financial Mail and news editor of Grazia SA. She is passionate about South Africa’s palaeoanthropological heritage, her native Eastern Cape and women’s rights. She is a feminist who struggles to pinpoint when and why that word became a dirty one.
