Media is a vital tool in terms of disseminating information about rights and duties and ways of holding duty bearers accountable. It can also be used as a tool to fight against gender inequality and a means of developing women’s leadership and economic empowerment. Advocacy through media is taken as the key strategy which provides a platform in informing, educating and generating debate and discussions on various issues. Today many methods of sharing information have been subsumed by giant social media platforms that have incredible speed, reach and penetration. Through recognition events and professional development of women journalists, our purpose is to bring talented,dedicated, established and up-coming women in media together.
