The ‘I Am a Woman’ Campaign is not only about women’s rights
The first of three articles in a series by the International Women’s Media Foundation to highlight the global campaign to end gender inequality in the media, which aims to educate and empower women.
“I am a woman is not just an identity, it’s a way of being.
It’s about standing up and being heard.
It is not an identity.
It represents a life that I choose to live, and it is about having your voice heard,” says Jodie Mancini, the chief executive of IWMF.”
The world is going through an important transition right now.
We are facing new challenges like climate change, migration and inequality in many ways, but the main challenge is about the lack of equal opportunity for women and girls.
And in the absence of an equitable and just global society, women are often left with little choice but to find their voice and act out their own dreams,” she adds.
The IWMFs report – which aims at ending gender inequality and gender-based violence in media – will be presented to the UN General Assembly on Monday.
The campaign is a response to a UN report published in February called The Global Gender Gap Report: The Media, the World and the People.
The report, which focuses on the impact of gender inequality on the lives of women and children, found that women have less freedom to speak their minds in the public sphere and are more likely to be censored and censored out of existence.
It also found that many women are not even allowed to express themselves, with only 50 per cent of women able to express their opinions on social media.
According to the report, women’s voices are “substantially under-represented” in the news media.
The gap between the number of female voices and the number being heard is growing.
Women have historically been more vocal about their experiences of gender-related violence, discrimination and sexual harassment, the report said.
It said that while “there is no perfect solution to gender inequality, it is imperative to create a space where the voices of women can be heard”.
“The media must not just report on women, it must also be the first stop for women to be heard and heard positively,” the report states.
The global campaign has been launched on social networks, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The Global Campaign for Equal Opportunities and Access to Media has more than 30 organisations including the International Olympic Committee, the UN, Amnesty International and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
The report was jointly produced by the IWMFE and the US-based advocacy group Global Justice Now.
It says that, “It is important to note that gender inequality is not the only issue facing women in media.
Women in all sectors face gender-specific discrimination and disadvantage in the workplace, in education, in the military, in politics, and in the arts, and these are just some of the inequalities that affect women in our society”.
