Women Make the News 2011

The relevance for #Wikipedia of this #UNESCO project becomes evident when you read more about it. Initially the impression is that it is about women in conventional news organisations, but when you read further it becomes apparent that it is about "media and information systems".

What we do in our projects is exactly that.

This years aim is to "highlight good practices in this area and emphasize the importance of fostering media and information literate societies as a way to improve the understanding of women and men about gender perspectives in media and information systems".

To do this they are seeking best practices for addressing gender related issues. Contributions can be submitted until 30 March 2011.
