Since completing English and development studies, Judith's core interest has been in human rights, with a broad focus on bringing those at the margins of society to the centre of issues and enhancing their voices. She believes that much work remains to be done in achieving gender equality and addressing HIV/Aids. She was the coordinator of the Empowering Children and the Media Strategy with the Media Monitoring Project and has been a lecturer at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. She is currently working in the Gender and Governance Programme at Gender Links. Judith is fascinated with civil society because of the possibilities it allows us to create more responsible, people-centered communities and is due to complete a master's in public policy with the Wits School of Governance in 2008. She continues to participate and attend research seminars.
