Formed in March 2001, Gender Links (GL) is a Southern African NGO, headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa that promotes gender equality and justice across the fifteen countries of the region. Described in a 2005 external evaluation as “a small organisation with large footprints”  GL took giant footsteps in 2008 with the establishment of a Francophone office in Mauritius, and regional advocacy office in Botswana, headquarters of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). By March 2012, GL had established a Lusophone base in Mozambique, and offices in Lesotho, Madagascar, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The organisation has close to 60 staff, 30% of these men. The 10-member Board chaired by Dr Muna Ndulo from Zambia comprises nine SADC nationalities, 25% of whom are men.
