Banda believes 100 per cent that it is her role as a journalist to contribute to making a difference to women’s lives. She says part of her role is to inform and educate, and in the process, be able to make a difference in the lives of many women. “Members of the public look up to the media not only for information, education and entertainment but also for some kind of inspiration. The public can use the media as a vehicle to convey their views on various issues,” Banda said. She urged media practitioners to view their jobs as a calling which they can use to improve lives in their communities and make the world a better place for all. Banda says change in one person’s life can inspire others to make their own lives better, and can create hope in other people; there is a ripple effect.

“My first encounter with Gender Links was in 2010, when l attended a workshop on Gender Policy in the Media Houses. l was so moved with the workshop; from the beginning l noticed that l was at the right place taking into account my position of HR in a media house. Since then, l have seen myself differently. My working schedule also has changed. I am able to speak out, about the rights of women. My life also has changed.À

Banda attributes his interests for gender issues to Gender Links. “I first got introduced to gender and media issues in 2011. It was through a gender workshop organised by Gender Links,” Banda said. “Pushpa Jameson trained us on the importance of mainstreaming gender in media content, and how the media could be an agent for change in advocating for gender equality.” From this moment on, Banda has always been gender conscious when developing programme content and writing news.
