Leveraging the Power of News Media to End GBV

News media plays a critical role in defining and shifting the discourse on human rights and gender empowerment. This session will explore how to leverage the influential voice of news media to end gender-based violence (GBV). It will focus on taking a survivor-centric approach through strengthened reporting standards to enhance public perceptions of GBV and equip participants with tools for improving GBV reporting. The panel will also feature a discussion on the challenges faced by women journalists reporting on GBV, the rise in new forms of violence in the virtual age, and the perspectives of youth media in tackling GBV through online news.  This session will be convened by the Center for Women's Global Leadership, UNFPA’s Regional Response Hub and the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma.
