    Dear editors, reporters, anchors of news organizations, bloggers,

    I am writing to you with a personal invitation from UN Women. On 25 November, we will commemorate the International Day to End Violence against Women. It will kick off 16 days of global activism, until 10 December, to halt this gross violation of women’s human rights that affects at least 1 in 3 women and girls worldwide.

    News media monitoring study by Women for Women's Rights, Palestine, shows that women are vastly under-represented as journalists and in content. “Palestinian women are portrayed … as oppressed, incompetent, exploited, incapable, and unappreciated. They are not viewed as empowered partners in social and economic development. In fact, women who are capable and successful are rarely invited to actively participate in development and share their stories of success".

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.
