Empower Women in Media Skills : Women Speaking

Partner: Heinrich Boll Foundation
Summary: Freedom of expression and right to information is supposedly guaranteed in the Palestinian law, but it however contains gaps and loose wording which de facto limit journalists’ rights. Next to that, since the media is dominated by male journalists, there is talk of underrepresentation of women in the media. The main goals of this project are to empower Palestinian women by increasing their skills qualification and knowledge in presenting themselves in the media and to improve radio journalism in program productions as well.
