Event description

Webinar for the Launch of the Guidelines and Training for Media Professionals on Responsible Representation and Reporting of Violence Against Women and Children

Training and Guidelines on Responsible Representation and Reporting of VAW/VAC for the media will assist in deepening the understanding of journalists and editors of stereotypical and harmful gender stereotypes- including victim blaming- which can be perpetuated through media messages. Such training will provide skills and techniques to journalists and editors to analyze facts, issues and data from a gender perspective. The timing of this round of media training punctuates the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence. Partner agencies can call for participating media agencies’ commitment to put an end to this global pandemic of violence against women and children as well as commitment at a personal level to the promotion of a balanced and non-stereotyped portrayal of women and girls.
