Women Make the News 2014

International Women’s Day (IWD) campaigns step up demands for the respect of women’s basic civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.

Launched annually by UNESCO on the occasion of IWD, the Women Make the News Campaign seeks to raise awareness on concerns about gender equality in and through the media, driving debate, and encouraging action-oriented solutions until global objectives are met.

The 2014 Campaign theme “Advancing Global Partnerships to Achieving Gender Equality in and through Media” is a direct follow-up to commitments made last December by the Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMG).

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.
