The Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights (ECWR) has launched a new “Egyptian Women and the Media Forum”. The Forum will facilitate journalists' access to information, data and statistics regarding women in Egypt.
Launched in March 2014 during a meeting between ECWR and journalists from several newspapers, the Forum responds to the lack of information about women in Egypt that is accessible for journalists.
ECWR's blog indicates that the Centre will release press briefings on its website to make available to journalists and media professionals information and statistics they are researching. "ECWR will also put forward the names of female experts in different fields for the Egyptian media".
Since 1996 ECWR has worked to improve the political and legal status of women in Egypt.
