Mango Tshabangu discusses the growth of the Zenele (do it yourself) philosophy and practice among women in South Africa. Zenele clubs were founded in the Eastern Cape in the 1920s by mission-educated African women who sought to improve the lives of rural women by focusing on womens' resilience and leadership, the power of education and training for income-generation, and solidarity across class and ethnic divides.

Mango Tshabangu worked as a journalist for the Sunday Times and was a member of the management team of World Newspapers.
