Women Make the News- Promote one or more women on your homepage
“Let the Images of Women Speak Powerfully”
Only 24% of persons seen, heard, spoken of or read about in the media are women, and only 6% of stories highlight issues of gender equality or inequality.
UNESCO and the Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAG) invite stakeholders to participate in the theme “Women and the Media” by featuring the images of women at all levels of society on the homepage of your website to mark 15 years of the UNESCO’s Women Make the News initiative and 20 years Beijing Platform for Action which committed stakeholders to ensure equality opportunity for women and their empowerment.
Each month will be dedicated to a theme and tackle critical areas of concern. The month of May focuses on “Women and the Media” - women’s access, leadership and non-stereotypical representation in media.
