Ramallah - Nisaa FM - The latest numbers show that there’s an imbalance in media: We need more women in management positions, more women quoted in media outlets, more women used in the capacity of experts, and more women reporting on issues like politics, government and conflicts. Without a gender balance in which women are included on equal terms as men in media content and production, media will never be able to provide information with diverse perspectives and voices that reflect reality.
Change is on the way. Leading up to International Women’s Day on 8 March, at IMS we wish to highlight gender projects from our media partners that actively work to change the gender imbalance in media.
In a series of stories, we will take you to Jordan, Myanmar, Somalia, Lebanon and Colombia to introduce you to some of the initiatives that are working and creating an impact. Stay tuned!
