This report provides an analysis of documents, interviews, lecture observations and student focus groups conducted at Evelyn Hone College (EHC), University of Zambia (UNZA) and Zambia Institute of Mass Communication Educational Trust (ZAMCOM) in September 2009. It forms part of the Gender In Media Education in Southern Africa (GIME): the most comprehensive study yet undertaken of the gender dimensions of journalism and media education and training in tertiary institutions in Southern Africa. The GIME study took place in 25 institutions in 13 countries
including Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe between October 2009 and April 2010. Gender Links (GL) undertook the study through the Gender and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC), a partnership between media development organisations and knowledge institutions.

For this research, a total of 39 individuals were interviewed, comprising nine staff members and 30
students. Of these interviews 44% of the staff and 53% of the students were female.
