Views and experiences on the GMMP

Coordinators and organizers share views about the GMMP

The GMMP team spoke with several national coordinators on monitoring day.

"GMMP is totally a different experience because I feel that I am not alone, and a lot of people are working together so its about solidarity. Its about understanding things together. Its about changing things together. So in a lot of ways it gives me a courage. It gives me a lot of enthusiasm. Its also good to see the new comers, the young people who take it really seriously and their enthusiasm. The world is really diverse, and we have a lot of differences in many countries of the world. But an event like GMMP makes us understand we can still work together with the same goals." - Gitiara Nasreen, National Coordinator, Bangladesh.

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.
