Gender - Gender Links is hosting Regional SADC Gender Summit

In today's show, we spoke to Katherine Robinson from Gender Links. We were talking about the Regional SADC Gender Summit. The Summit is hosted by Gender Links and the Southern Africa Protocol Alliance under the theme 5050 by 2015 and a stronger post-2015 agenda. The post-2015 forum will also stress the controversial issues that continue to hinder the achievement of gender equality, namely sexual and reproductive health rights, rights concerning sexual orientation and gender identity and persistent high levels of gender based violence. Furthermore, a petition drafted by Gender Links which will be circulated amongst the SADC visitors for signatures to call on the Nigerian government to prioritise the rescue of the 276 Nigerian girls who were recently abducted by Boko Haram.
