The Media Against Gender-Based Violence
Date: 30 November 2012-11-27
Time: 10am – 12pm
Venue: The Book Café, 139 Samora Machel Avenue cnr 6th Street
On November 30, the Media Alliance of Zimbabwe (MAZ), in partnership with Pamberi Trust, presents a media roundtable discussion entitled: The Media Against Gender-Based Violence. The public is invited to attend this stimulating discussion, which will also be attended by significant, print, digital and broadcast media. The media have often been criticized for their erratic coverage of gender-based violence, and their focus on these issues has the potential to have a huge impact. The responsibility of the media in addressing these issues is encouraged to go beyond the 16 Days of November activism period. The goal for this event is to discuss the media’s role in shaping the discourse around this issue.
This discussion will be moderated by Pamberi Trust Information and Communications Projects Officer, Extra-Blessings Kuchera.
