Gender Links (GL) and the Gender and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC) has audited institutions of higher learning in Southern Africa to determine if and how gender has been integrated in journalism and media education and training. It was apparent from the general findings of the Gender in Media Education research that educators are willing to integrate gender into curriculum but do not always have the capacity to do so.
