All Africa publishes around 600 reports a day from more than 140 news organizations and over 500 other institutions and individuals, representing a diversity of positions on every topic.We publish news and views ranging from vigorous opponents of governments to government publications and spokespersons.From my perspective, I never looked at men’s tennis as being a more exciting game to watch.In fact, at one time men’s tennis was far more predictable, whereas with the women it was always a toss-up between who would win each tournament.Today, Sweden, Norway and Denmark have laws that unilaterally criminalise the buying of sex.We are not convinced that decriminalising prostitution will protect women from HIV or violence.Gender inequality is something that is far from being solved; however, in professional tennis women are narrowing the pay gap.
