Manager, Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance, Gender Links

A passionate human rights activist, Judith Mtsewu's work in civil society aims to give a voice to the marginalised, particularly women and children. She is especially interested in the country's response to the care work and gender aspects of HIV/Aids. Nearing the completion of her master's in public policy management at the University of the Witwatersrand, Mtsewu works for Gender Links. Prior to this she was project coordinator of the Empowering Children and Media programme at the Media Monitoring Project. There she developed the university accredited "Reporting on Children� course in partnership with the Wits School of Journalism, aimed at sensitising and training journalists on how to better cover children and child's rights issues. � Lynley Donnelly
