24 Sep 2014 Building the Capacity of Egyptian Organizations Engaged in Monitoring the Media for Gender Representation
Media and Gender Justice
For the first time, a number of organisations received training in monitoring the image of women and men in media and formed an Egyptian network. The idea of monitoring began to spread to other organisations and its importance is highlighted. The organisations managed to set a common work plan to work on other relevant issues, such as violence perpetrated against women and how to implement a campaign on the issues identified. The project established rapport with other semi-official bodies such as the National Council for Women, which is a basis for cooperation in the future. The data collected now forms an accurate archive on the status of the representation of women and men in media in Egypt.
