Global Alliance on Media and Gender Debates

  on November 08, 2013

GFMGAn online discussion has been launched in preparation for the Global Forum on Media and Gender, a pioneering global event that intends to address gender equality and women’s empowerment in and through the media.

The Forum is convened by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in collaboration with several key partners and will take place in Bangkok (Thailand) from 2 to 4 December, 2013.

The World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) is pleased to be one of the key partners collaborating with UNESCO in organising the Forum.

A planned key output of the Forum is the establishment of a Global Alliance on Media and Gender which presents an important collaborative platform for groups, organisations and institutions working on gender and media. The Alliance will coordinate systematic follow-up to one of the critical areas of concern of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, “Women and the Media”.

The online discussion hosts several debates intended to help define the form, priorities and activities of the new Global Alliance.

Have your say in the debates by registering at http://www.wsis-community.org/pg/register/ or sending an email to gfmediagender@unesco.org to request for an invitation.

Beijing +20: In my opinion...

The most important contribution that the Beijing Platform for Action has made to advancing gender equality in and through the media is:

Setting global standards to which governments and the media can be held accountable
Bringing coherence to and greater understanding of civil society initiatives on gender, women and media
Raising the profile of work on 'women and media' as important for addressing gender inequalities in women's lived experiences.
