One of the AfricaVox journalists, Zinhle Mapumulo, has been interviewed for openSummit, a blog covering the G8 process from a woman’s perspective.
Zinhle talks about her motivation for covering this year's Summit and her experiences so far:
"As a woman, I feel there’s never any in-depth coverage of women: I want to know how do the G8 contributions, how do their pledges benefit me and my 2 year-old daughter..."
“Women’s empowerment is the key to development in Africa. That’s what I’d like them to focus on. How will their pledges empower us?”
