Gemma joined UN Women Timor-Leste’s Communications and Advocacy Internship program for 6 months. This program is designed for enrolled university or higher education students and recent graduates that aims to increase their knowledge on the work of UN Women in the areas of gender equality and women empowerment. Successful candidates can also learn about the UN system as well as experience a bigger picture of being in the development sector.
The workshop aimed to promote responsible reporting of cases of domestic violence and gender-based violence in the media as well as to encourage media professionals in Timor-Leste to begin thinking more critically about the role of the media in perpetuating negative gender stereotypes, discrimination against women and inequality.
The Government of Timor-Leste, in partnership with Asia Development Bank and UN Women, is conducting a Country Gender Assessment as a measuring tool for progress on equality between women and men. Factors such as women’s participation in the workforce, health, security, education, violence and justice have been examined to ascertain challenges and ways forward.
