Gender and Media Diversity Journal No. 6

Gender, Diversity, Elections and the Media

The Gender and Media Diversity Journal is the biennial journal of the Gender
and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC). The GMDC is a physical and virtual
resource centre based in Southern Africa, managed by Gender Links and the
Gender and Media Southern Africa (GEMSA) Network, with linkages in Africa
and across the globe. The journal is an intellectual but not academic
journal. It provides up-to-date and cutting edge information on media
diversity in Southern Africa and the space for the dissemination of research
findings and projects; case studies; campaigns; policy developments; and
opinion and debate on media practice in the region. Each journal covers
latest developments in media and diversity, as well a focuses on a different
thematic area identified in consultation with the GMDC advisory group.

Contributions are sought in the following broad categories:

* What's New - briefs on new research, initiatives in training and
education, policy initiatives, and IT developments relevant to gender, media
and diversity, and activism. (500 words each)
* Media watch - review of media programmes from a gender and diversity
perspective, reports on recent monitoring projects by gender and media
networks (750 words each or in-depth articles 3000 words each)
* Talk back - opinion (750 words) and letters (250 words)

In focus topic: Gender, Diversity, Elections and the Media
(Articles 3000 - 3500 words each)
The sixth edition of the Gender and Media Diversity Journal will focus on
the topic of "Gender, Diversity, Elections and the Media." This topic is
particularly relevant given the large number of elections happening in the
SADC region in the next few years, the August 2008 signing of the SADC
Gender Protocol (which includes commitments from leaders to 50% women in
decision-making) , and Gender Links' ongoing work with media and politicians
around gender and elections. The recent past and next couple of years will
see elections all around Southern Africa. The complex post-Zimbabwean
election aftermath, last years first Angolan Parliamentary elections since
1992, and Ghana's recent successful handover of power through the polls, all
offer cases for analysing intersections between Gender, Diversity, Elections
and the Media. Malawi, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Mozambique will
all go to the polls in 2009. In 2010, it is Mauritius' turn. The media's
coverage of elections is central to ensuring free and fair elections,
including the representation of diverse voices. Media access is also
essential for women politicians, to work towards successfully achieving the
50% goal.
