27 Aug Training Workshop for Women Journalists in North Kivu
Communication for Peace
Democratic Republic of Congo
A survey of 789 women took place on issues of peace and security in the North-Kivu region. 24 women journalists were trained in techniques to lobby for peace, who went on to produce and broadcast 15 radio programmes.The project affirmed the urgent need to strengthen training in journalism practices with the aim of professionalising women journalists. It also identified the need to encourage the recruitment of women broadcasters in local radio stations and to intensify cooperation between women’s rights activists and women journalists. The project was successfully carried out in the context of the extremely dangerous situation facing women generally and women journalists and rights activists in particular. Violence, intimidation and discrimination limit women’s ability to participate in public affairs and to contribute actively to ending conflict.
