SA tourism national team… in Italy

Women are better than men in selling SA travel destination. At least in Italy, especially during recent Imbizo Day convention 2014. There was no male members in the delegation flew from South africa to Chiantishire: all southafrican girls (well, better say ladies; despite of Sister’s Sledge’s song)   with different looks but similar high skills.  Some of them exposed their ‘goods’ in italian, for instance Lidia from 3Sixty – Sun international who presented her “Africa’s Golden triangle” located  between Cape town and Victoria Falls; or a couple of girls ‘branded’ by Joburg Tourism. Others were very smart in catching english speaking audience, as Chelsea (from Aquila) or Filippa (from Protea Hotels) did.

Blond or red as they were, a competitive team anyway; perhaps not so good in playing football or cricket, but yes, tourism marketing indeed.

To be a woman? Still hard

To be a woman in Italy or in Southafrica, what is harder? The average number of children for a SA female is 2,7, really more than the italian one (1,4), even if her maternity vacation is one month shorter, and less payed (60 per cent of salary; for italians is 80 per cent). Anyway, the politcal career seems easier for a Southafrican: only 13 per cent of italian deputies are women, while 40 on 100 in Southafrica. Italian females retire 5 years later, but their lifehope is still almost twice of the italian one.

  • 274184_watching_them_play.jpgSouthafricans women are the most interested in soccer. Is it true? That’s what claims Sport+Markt, who made an analysis based on a 20.000 women interviews-campaign. Sport+Markt listened to females aged 16-69 years: more than 60 per cent of Southafricans ones answered “yes” to the question “are you interested in football”. They resulted more used to follow football than brazilians (57 per cent) or italians (40). perhaps this is a conseguence of 2010 WC coming. We’ll wait and see..

  • Le donne sudafricane sono le più interessate del mondo al calcio? Lo afferma uno studio condotto da una società di consulenza, la Sport+Markt su un campione di 20mila femmine tra i 16 ed i 69 anni, in 21 paesi del mondo. Ebbene secondo lo studio il 62 per cento delle sudafricane si dice interessata al calcio, più delle brasiliane (57 per cento) e molto più delle italiane (40 per cento). Tra gli altri dati rilevati, le italiane appaiono più interessate al campionato che alla nazionale, a differenza delle tedesche.
