Women Make the News 2013: Towards a Global Alliance on Media and Gender

Submitted by admin on Fri, 03/08/2013 - 11:14

On this occasion of International Women’s Day, 8 March, UNESCO joins forces with international and regional partners including AIBD to launch the annual Women Make the News (WMN) initiative under the theme, Towards a Global Alliance on Media and Gender.

Launched annually, Women Make the News is a global initiative aimed at fixing attention on an issue relating to gender equality in and through the media, driving debate and encouraging action-oriented solutions until global objectives are met. It is to this end that UNESCO has developed resources such as the Gender-Sensitive Indicators for Media.

This year, UNESCO produced a new video on the WMN website through a partnership with CNN. It was done specifically for WMN and can be broadcasted at no cost to AIBD members. Remember that WMN 2013 goes up until the 30 March, so any action you will take tomorrow and after will be relevant.
