What is the Gender Links News Service?

The Gender Links News Service, formerly known as the Gender Links Opinion and Commentary Service is an innovative multi-media project of Gender Links, a Southern African NGO that promotes gender equality in and through the media, to provide the media with fresh views and voices on current affairs. The service has its roots in the Gender and Media Baseline Study (GMBS), which showed that women's voices and gender issues are grossly under-represented in the media. The service is not only multimedia and of regional relevance, but is tri-lingual, with news and opinion in English, Portuguese and French.

The English service is anchored in Johannesburg, South Africa covering news from Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The French service is based in Mauritius which receives contributions from DRC, Madagascar, Mauritius and Seychelles. The Portuguese Service was launched in 2011. It is anchored in Maputo, carrying stories from Mozambique and Angola.
