#SeeHer's Gender Equality Measure (GEM™) scored the new "Just Like Her" ad and it earned an outstanding score of 117, well above the average index of 100. With complementary missions and the high GEM ranking, Teleflora formally joined the group, and becomes the 50th national marketer supporting #SEEHER. Teleflora's ad positively reflects the #SeeHer mission, which is to accurately portray all girls and women in media so that by 2020, they see themselves reflected as they truly are. The year 2020 commemorates the 100th anniversary of American women obtaining the right to vote. Teleflora's "Just Like Her" video ad can now be seen within the #SeeHer Ad Gallery page. The #SeeHer initiative was announced in June 2016 by Bob Liodice, CEO of the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) at the United State of Women Summit in Washington, D.C. and has become a collective of the nation's largest advertisers and the industry's foremost advocate for sophisticated, realistic, family-themed content on traditional and digital platforms. "We are thrilled that Teleflora's 'Just Like Her" video ad is being honored as a top example for gender equality," said David Dancer, executive vice president, head of marketing at Teleflora. "It seems particularly fitting, as we are honoring moms everywhere this Mother's Day for their massive influence in shaping who we are, that we, as a mindful business also embrace the #SeeHer effort as a long-term partner. We look forward to collaborating with the AFE on future projects to help their vision become a reality." "We are delighted to have Teleflora join our growing roster of marketers committed to gender equality in advertising and media," added Stephen Quinn, Chair of the AFE #SeeHer (former CMO Walmart and Pepsico.)

I am looking forward to working closely with them and utilizing their extensive market insight about women customers to accelerate our goal of increasing accurate portrayal of women in girls in media 20% by 2020."

Despite the strides made to accurately portray women and women in the media, an unconscious bias persists against women and girls in advertising, media, and programming. The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) Alliance for Family Entertainment (AFE) launched the #SeeHer initiative in June 2016 in a joint-partnership with The Girl's Lounge, after the White House announced the elimination of gender bias in media as critical to the nation's future.

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) on Friday expressed “extreme outrage and disappointment” over the Eskom board’s decision to reinstate former chief executive, Brian Molefe, in the position he recently resigned from. This comes after Business Report on Friday broke the news that Molefe, now an African National Congress MP, would be returning to the power utility on Monday after its board decided to rescind his application for early retirement because it could not agree with him “on a mutually beneficial pension proposal”. Outa chairperson Wayne Duvenage said this move by the Eskom board was ludicrous, and that the organisation would possibly be seeking action against this decision. “We are absolutely shocked about this decision. It was clear that Molefe had resigned. “There was not indication that he was retired. “We are going to look at Eskom policy on retirement, whether it is 55 years or what. But Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown is going to have to put her foot down against this,” Duvenage told African News Agency (ANA) over the phone. “We are going to seek possible action going forward. This decision is going to send a wrong message that you can disregard the Public Protector’s findings. It’s the biggest farce we’ve seen in a long time that government can play with taxpayer’s money so easily.” Molefe stepped down at the end of December last year “in the interest of good corporate governance” after the release of the Public Protector’s report on state capture. The report had raised questions about his proximity to members of the Gupta family whose company, Tegeta Exploration and Resources, is a supplier of coal to Eskom. Last month, Brown objected to Eskom’s R30-million pension payout to Molefe. This decision is being seen as the catalyst for the Eskom board’s decision to rescind Molefe’s early retirement application. Eskom board spokesperson, Khulani Qoma, confirmed that Molefe would be returning to head the power utility. “We looked at options, we could not agree on the options. The decision to rescind was the only viable one,” Qoma said. “When he stepped down the board was not in agreement, it grudgingly accepted that he was stepping down. The State of Capture [report] is actually not a conclusive document and we will have a conversation if it gets concluded at the point when it does, if it does. “As it stands, we cannot hang him on the basis of the [Public Protector’s] report, which is admittedly not conclusive,” he added.

In a new twist in the saga over compensation of white farmers who were ejected from their farms in Zimbabwe, two groups of dispossessed landowners have emerged, one of which argues that government is not liable and should not pay for land. Invasions of white-owned farms in Zimbabwe began in 2000 and have continued since. However, compensation has not been forthcoming from the Zimbabwe Government, despite international arbitration awards, in some cases more than ten years ago. The African News Agency (ANA) has seen claims about a newly formed group, the Compensation Steering Committee (CSC), in an open letter written by former Zimbabwean commercial farmer, Ben Freeth, to all dispossessed Zimbabwean farmers. The former president of the Commercial Farmers’ Union, John Laurie, is reported to have addressed an “inaugural stakeholders meeting” with government on April 6 at the Rainbow Towers Hotel in Harare. The meeting, which catered for about 50 attendees, was reported to have been chaired by the government’s Permanent Secretary for Lands and Rural Resettlement, Grace Mutandiro. Freeth said Laurie claims to represent dispossessed farmers under the CSC, even though the new organisation is taking the position that there should be no compensation for land, but only for developments made on it. Freeth – whose father-in-law, Mike Campbell, took the land dispute to the Southern African Development Community’s regional human rights court, the SADC Tribunal – insists the CSC does not represent all dispossessed farmers. Campbell was joined by other farmers in the lawsuit and in the end there were 77 farmers behind the court action. Freeth says he has written his open letter to dispossessed Zimbabwean farmers to raise awareness about developments around the issue of compensation and the newly formed CSC, which he charges with unilaterally deciding to “absolve the government of its responsibilities”. The CSC is on record as saying that it represents all farming bodies (and approximately 90% of the commercial farmers) in negotiations for compensation with the Zimbabwe Government. Freeth – whose father-in-law was hounded off his Mount Carmel farm by long-time cabinet minister Nathan Shamuyarira – disagrees. “I can’t comment about other groups, but I know for a fact that the Southern African Commercial Farmers’ Alliance (SACFA) never endorsed the CSC – even though John Laurie stated at the Rainbow Towers Hotel that SACFA had endorsed the CSC,” he said. “This new organisation is apparently conceding that there should be no compensation for the land. I object in the strongest possible terms to this concession.” The mango farmer added that he was “dumbfounded that Laurie should make such a concession and claim to absolve the government of its responsibilities”. Freeth said the compensation process must cover in the full “basket” of international human rights breaches committed during the land grabs process. “The human rights obligations that Zimbabwe is signed up to protect must be fully dealt with. International law must be brought into play. Comparable sales values with farms in the sub-region must be used to get a fair value for the land. “We have a situation here where we as the dispossessed are purportedly being represented by the CSC which is negotiating with the very same thief – the Zimbabwe government – that has dispossessed us. “This government has illegally stolen our businesses, livelihoods and homes, as well as those of our workers, wrecking countless lives and brutalising thousands in the process. Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced and the country’s agro-based economy has been destroyed.”
