There will be ten national elections and one presidential election in the Southern Africa in 2009 and 2010. Gender Links will be conducting workshops in the ten SADC countries that will be having elections in 2009 and 2010, The workshops will target the media and women politicians.

The media is central to putting gender on the agenda in public sphere. This is particularly important during elections. Women’s voices are largely absent from the political discourse during elections both as voters and candidates. Generally, women politicians have a difficult relationship with the media and the often say that women politicians are less accessible than their male counterparts. The Gender, media and elections workshops bring the media and women politicians together to engage honestly and constructively on ways to mainstream gender in political coverage and to create effective working relations between the two.
