Roadmap to Equality : DVD on the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development

The Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance produced the Roadmap to Equality DVD to provide a visual documentation of the campaign process leading up to the final adoption of the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development in August 2008.

The DVD aims to bring the process to life through pictures, words and music. It presents a case study of citizen engagement in a concerted three year campaign for adoption of a key sub-regional instrument that can be used to draw out lessons for future advocacy work on gender equality and other developmental areas.

It complements the handbook, Roadmap to Equality: Lessons learned in the campaign for a SADC Protocol on Gender and Development and the CD Roadmap to Equality: Voices and Views a 10-part series of radio reports that includes voices and perspectives on gender equality from across Southern Africa.

Among other issues, the video highlights the following:

– A portrayal of the key gender challenges that confront the region

– It tells the history of the Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance and how this collaboration has helped to take the campaign forward as well as focus areas of its future work on ratification and implementation of the Gender Protocol

– Gives voice to key government officials, non-government and regional organisations who gave impetus to the campaign.

Red card: Resource DVD for trainers and community activists

Sonke has recently used the Ambush Theatre approach in the Red Card Campaign, an initiative which seeks to reduce children and especially girl’s vulnerability to sexual exploitation. This approach has been used to get attention and spark debate and discussion around sexual exploitation of children and the fouls that deserve the Red Card. The approach has also been used to engage and inform taxi drivers, train commuters and other groups about the campaign.

The Red Card toolkit included instructions on how to perform Ambush Theatre and an Ambush Theatre instructional video and real-world demonstration, filmed in Cape Town at the Claremont taxi rank during the campaign activation. The performance clearly indicates how Ambush Theatre tool can be used to get attention and spark debate and discussions around sexual exploitation of children and the “foulsÀ that deserve the Red Card.

In rural areas of Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, and Limpopo provinces, grassroots groups, clinics and civic organisations are working tirelessly to reduce the spread of HIV, to promote timely testing and treatment, and to minimise the impact of AIDS. Crucial to the success of these efforts is ensuring a meaningful role for those who are most directly affected. With this in mind, Sonke Gender Justice Network is pleased to present this DVD and study guide. The guide offers a starting point for sharing digital stories created in 2008 by rural South Africans in order to explore the links between gender, poverty, violence and HIV. Our hope is that those who view the stories will indeed be inspired to take individual and collective action towards building safe and healthy

Research Report: Violence Against Disabled, Lesbian, and Sex-working Women in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal (2012)

This report is based on the first ever multi-country research study on violence against disabled, lesbian, and sex-working women in three countries in South Asia- Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. It collates the findings and recommendations that emerged from the three country studies conducted by CREA, in partnership with University College London; James P Grant School of Public Health, BRAC University, Bangladesh; Society for Nutrition, Education, and Health Action, India; and Centre for Research on Environment Health and Population Activities, Nepal. This is a step towards filling in some of the evidence gaps in research about or from South Asia on the intersections of marginalisation, gender, and violence against women.
