The August edition of The Media pays tribute to women in this industry, their achievements, their challenges and what makes them tick.
We meet one of Africa’s media doyennes who became the first black women news editor and then editor of a mainstream Zimbabwean newspaper… against all odds.
We seek out women who are moving and shaking in digital media in this country and could potentially be the next leaders of our industry.
The Media gets inside the heads of young women in media agencies to find their ambitions, dreams and beliefs about their careers and this industry.
Then, in case you were wondering if ‘Come Dine with Me South Africa’ came to an end because of clumsy product placement, we were too. So, we investigated.
Women media entrepreneurs are few and far between, so we ask how those who have managed, did it. We also ask what can be changed both here and internationally to increase their numbers.
Until recently, it appeared as if women had effectively come into their own in this industry. But, this is not necessarily the case right now both here and abroad.
We also tackle the most comprehensive and disturbing international research into harassment of women in the media.
This is definitely not all. Don’t miss this edition of The Media.
