    Gender Links, in partnership with the Gender and Media Southern Africa (GEMSA) Network and the Media Institute of Southern Africa, will hold the third Gender and Media summit from August 10-12, 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The theme of the summit is: “Whose news, whose views? Critical citizens, responsive media.” The summit will bring together media practitioners, trainers, gender activists, and all those who subscribe to the GEMSA slogan “making every voice count, and counting that it does” to share best practices in creating a more responsive media.

    The summit will feature the third Gender and Media awards, recognizing good practice in mainstreaming gender in reporting across the Southern African Development Community. This year the awards will also recognize progressive institutional practice in adopting and implementing HIV and AIDS policies as part of the Media Action Plan on HIV and AIDS and Gender.
