GIME and GMPS workshops: Media has failed women

Gender Links recently hosted verification and advocacy workshops in 14 SADC countries to assess and follow up on the GIME and GMPS research from August to September 2010.

Following these workshops, seminars were held on the theme: Media has failed women in Southern Africa. At each workshop the focus was country specific and not regional. Undoubtedly, the seminars stirred up some heated debate among the delegates. While many do believe that the media is failing women, other stick to the premise that women have failed themselves.
