Johannesburg 28 April: During May 2015, as part of the UNESCO and Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAG) partnership, GAMAG Chair-Gender Links and GAMAG partners will promote awareness on issues related to Women and the Media as part of the Beijing +20 Review. All GAMAG members are invited to join efforts, resources and creativity to turn this initiative into a vibrant campaign that will address critical issues and challenge us to discuss a wide range of gender and communications matters.

The campaign will address the following themes each week of May:

4- 10 May: Education, Training and Research.
11-17 May: Public Awareness and Media Content.
18-24 May: Policy and regulation.
25-31 May: Employment and Women’s Participation in Media.

All GAMAG members are invited to send resources and materials. GL and the Gender Links News Service will be participating by releasing a podcast each week discussing these topics and what GL is doing in the Southern African region to advance gender equality in and through the media.
