22 November – Gender

Today we spoke to Raashied Galant, a “Women and Media” program co-ordinator from Gender Advocacy Program (GAP). According to GAP, the Women and Media Project seeks to address the stereotypical representation of women in the media and the effect this has on the perceptions of women’s ability to lead. The project was established in 1998.

Our second interview was with Nazma Hendricks – Counselling co-ordinator from Rape crisis. Nazma was talking about a very sensitive topic today, male rape. Male rape is far more common than you would think! According to reports between 10 -20 percent of all males will be sexually violated at some point in their lifetimes.
