Empowering Women for Gender Equity

Agenda aims to question and challenge current understandings and practices of gender relations. We contribute to the development of new knowledge about how gender relations can be transformed. In particular we contribute to the development of women and their capacity to organise themselves, reflect on their experiences and to write about this.

Who We Are

Agenda Feminist Media is committed to giving women a forum, a voice and skills to articulate their needs and interests towards transforming unequal gender relations. We aim to question and challenge current understandings and practices of gender relations.

What We Do

Agenda has been at the forefront of feminist publishing in South Africa for the past 28 years. Through our flagship project, the Agenda journal, we raise debate around women’s rights and gender issues. Visit publisher  Taylor & Francis Online to buy copies.
