In the spirit of promoting gender equality in the Media, UNESCO and partners have launched a video calling for action on gender equality and women’s empowerment in and through media in the form of a Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMG).

The video initially addresses the significant inequalities witnessed in the field of media and journalism in terms of gender and includes statements from Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO and Christiane Amanpour of CNN, bringing attention to the urgent actions needed in the field.

In relation to the GAMG, the Global Forum on Media and Gender will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 2-4 December.

The Global Forum on Media and Gender (GFMG) is a pioneering global event that intends to address gender equality and women’s empowerment in and through the media. A key output of the forum will be the establishment of a Global Alliance on Media and Gender which will coordinate systematic follow-up to one of the critical areas of concern of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BDPA), “Women and the Media Diagnosis”.

The video was co-produced with Gabinete de Comunicación y Educación (Communication and Education Research Group) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
