Converging Communications: Empowering Women, Transforming Communities

WiAcover

In this publication, ISIS International explores how issues of gender based violence, migration, climate change and environmental disasters, and LGBT advocacy, among others, interplay with issues of access to and availability of information and communication technologies. It further explores how the convergence of the multitude of communication tools and strategies-- the use of both new ICTs and traditional media, have allowed women to take an active part in finding solutions to these longstanding problems.

Through this issue, with inspiring stories from remarkable women from Indonesia, Philippines, Nepal, China, Haiti, India, Thailand, Kenya, Fiji, Germany, Malaysia and Mexico, Isis International brings to light how the convergence of new ICTs with traditional communication tools has allowed women to transcend being mere recipients of information to being recognised as valuable sources of information, empowering themselves and transforming their communities.

Isis International partnered with the World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) and the International Women's Tribune Centre in 1994 to organise the Women Empowering Communication Conference (Bangkok) during which the idea of the Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) was mooted.

Isis works through media and information and communications technologies (ICTs) with the aim to achieve women’s human rights and facilitate networking and information sharing of women’s movements in the global South. It's mission is to advocate for the realisation of women’s human rights in the struggle against patriarchal and fundamentalist forces by documenting feminist visions, creating critical communications, and strengthening social movements.

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.
