About this grant

"Agenda," a quarterly journal, was created to provide women with a forum in which to voice their needs and interests in transforming unequal gender relations in South Africa. "Agenda" creates the opportunity for women who have never had their work published. Its readership consists of researchers, policymakers and women and men in non-governmental and community-based organizations.Multiyear funding will support objectives that include producing four "Agenda" journals each year; facilitating a writing skills development project to mentor 12 new writers each year; operating a radio program to broadcast stories from the journal; conducting an internship program that will introduce two interns per year to strengthen their writing and office management skills; and surveying journal readers.
