About the Show

Sheroes is a South African documentary series produced by Dzuguda Productions which paints a portrait of South African society as seen through the eyes of women in a variety of different fields, from sport to business.

In the beginning, the show was devised in celebration of Women's Month 2011 and began with Sheroes in Sport, a four-part series of South African sports through the lives of four South African sports-related women.

These were netball player Hazel Gumede, football administrator Natasha Tsichlas, professional sprinter Geraldine Pillay and former Springbok captain Nomsebenzi Tsotsobe.

Season 2 was subtitled Sheroes in Media and celebrated a handful of women from a pool of ladies in various media scenes who have dismissed and broken through stereotypical boundaries that come with being a woman in a male dominated society.

The four women featured in Season 2 were artiste agent Moonyeenn Lee, radio and television personality Shado Twala, actress Mary Twala and journalist Karima Brown.

Season 3 - Sheroes in Business - features four powerful women pathfinders in business who are key players in the South African economy. These include chartered accountant Nonkululeko Gobodo, entrepreneur Johanna Mukoki, AngloGold CFO Christine Ramon and self-made millionaire entrepreneur Ipeleng Mkhari.

Produced by Dzuguda Productions, Sheroes was directed by Xoliswa Sithole and the series producer was Ndanganeni Pearl Munonde. The executive producer was Rudzani Dzuguda.
