MedMedia: “Khabirat” to enhance gender equality in the media
March 10, 2016
The EU-funded MedMedia programme unveiled, on Tuesday 8 March 2016, “Khabirat, Women Experts in the Mediterranean” – a new initiative aimed at enhancing the contribution made by women to media outputs across the region.
Launched on International Women’s Day, the initiative will focus on establishing directories of women experts that can be used by editorial teams in the course of their work. “Khabirat” builds on consultations held with key media stakeholders since last summer and forms a key component of MedMedia’s strategy to enhance gender equality in the media.
