Bangkok, Thailand will host the Global Forum on Media and Gender (GFMG) from 2 to 4 December 2013. The event will address gender equality and women’s empowerment in and through the media. As a partner of UNESCO, which is the main organiser of the Forum, IPS will contribute its expertise in mainstreaming gender in its news products and producing media training manuals, events and platforms on different gender and development issues.

Connect with the event and register your interest here: UNESCO and partners call for interest.

UNESCO’s aim is to use the GFMG to launch a new Global Alliance on Media and Gender that will bring together media houses, journalists’ unions and associations, training bodies, CSOs, governments and UN agencies. For the media to produce coverage that is complete and diverse, it is critical that media content goes deeper than a male-centric and stereotypical perspective. All journalists, both female and male, can play a role in creating an enabling environment for promoting gender equality and eliminating gender-based stereotypes in and through media.
