    Descriptive info: Issue 15 - Asian Strategies for Media Monitoring, GMMP 2005.. Asian Strategies for Media Monitoring, GMMP 2005.. As women’s organisations and gender activists the world over are preparing for the ten year anniversary of the UN Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995 and the Beijing +10 review of the Beijing Platform for Action which will take place at the United Nations in New York next year, the WACC Women’s Programme and its partner organisations are celebrating an anniversary of their own..

  • Title: Issue 14 - The Global Media Monitoring Project Award Nomination
    Descriptive info: Issue 14 - The Global Media Monitoring Project Award Nomination.. The Global Media Monitoring Project Award Nomination.. The Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) will be 10 years old in 2005 and while numerous gender and communication activists, policy makers and academics have over the years recognized the importance of GMMP as a tool for change, to date there has been no formal recognition of the project.. All that changed at the end of last year when the nominations committee of the Feminist Scholarship Division of the International Communication Association (ICA) selected GMMP as their nominatation for the ICA award of Most Important Applied/ Public Policy Research Programme.. Karen Ross (University of Coventry) in the UK, was then responsible for putting the nomination package together on behalf of FSD..

  • Title: Issue 13 - A Tool for Change: Global Media Monitoring Project
    Descriptive info: Issue 13 - A Tool for Change: Global Media Monitoring Project.. A Tool for Change: Global Media Monitoring Project.. From 7th – 10th May, in Cape Town, fourteen men and women from around the world came together to discuss the launch of a project which has been described as ‘one of the most extraordinary collective enterprises yet organised within the global women’s movement’ – the Global Media Monitoring Project, or GMMP as it has come to be known.. GMMP was first conducted in 1995 after the idea for a worldwide day of media monitoring of the portrayal and representation of women was developed at the WACC conference ‘Women Empowering Communication in Bangkok in 1994.. Writing in a Time of Seige.. From February 1999 – April 2001, Women’s WORLD and Asmita Resource Centre for Women conducted a series of 10 workshops, over half of which were funded by the WACC Women’s Programme, with women writers in 10 Indian languages on the subject of gender-based censorship.. The workshops were attended by approximately 175 writers writing in Urdu, Telugu, Marathi, Malayalam, Hindi, Gujarati, Kannada, Bengali, English and Tamil.. The 10 regional language workshops culminated in a national colloquium in Hyderabad in July 2001 with approximately 70 writers from the 10 languages participating.. This major project - the discussion, findings and substance of which are contained in the publication, The Guarded Tongue: Women’s Writing and Censorship in India and The Tongue Set Free: Women Writers Speak About Censorship - marked the first time ever that so many writers from so many languages came together to discuss the critical issue of censorship.. Building on this work, Women’s WORLD is now conducting a series of regional workshops that cut across contiguous language areas within India and across borders on gender censorship.. Here Ritu Menon and Vasanth Kannabiran of Women’s WORLD/Asmita report on the first workshop in the series.. Leading Change: The Power to Act.. Can women’s  ...   perspective there were plenary keynote speeches from prominent women leaders.. Gender and Media Baseline Study: Monitoring the Media in Southern Africa.. In November 2001, representatives of the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) and Media Women's Associations from the Southern African Development Corporation (SADC) region, met in Windhoek at a MISA Gender Policy workshop that was facilitated by Gender Links.. The meeting noted that gender equality was implicit in the notions of a “pluralistic press", "reflecting the widest possible range of opinion within the community", "the fulfillment of human aspirations", "freedom of the press" and "freedom of association" as espoused in the 1991 Windhoek Declaration on Promoting an Independent and Pluralistic African press.. However, the failure to state this explicitly led to inadequate attention being paid to the gross gender disparities in the media.. Coupled with this a number of gaps such as the lack of research on gender in the media content were identified at this meeting.. Forum: Post-Feminism, the Market and the Media.. Since the mid-1980s, a steady chorus of media reports and a rising number of scholars have insisted that we live in a ‘post-feminist’ era.. The term ‘post-feminism’ is now frequently employed in both academic and popular discourse and yet there is little consensus as to what the term means.. Empowering Women in Evicted Slum Communities.. On October 15th 1990, with less than one week to quit notice announced over the radio, government bulldozers backed by military armoured vehicles, armed soldiers and police personnel demolished Maroko, Nigeria’s largest single slum community, leaving an estimated 300,000 without shelter.. Homes, schools, hospitals and businesses were destroyed and over twenty cases of rape were recorded during the evictions while hundreds of others were beaten, tortured, shot or detained by the security forces.. The government ruled out any prospect for compensation or resettlement of the displaced families.. A tool for Change: Global Media Monitoring Project 2005.. 'Shakti': Radio as Inspiration..

  • Title: Issue 12 - Globa Media Monitoring Project
    Descriptive info: Issue 12 - Globa Media Monitoring Project.. Global Media Monitoring Project.. Bombs reign down, shots are fired nearby and the camera closes in on a woman huddled in a doorway, crying and cradling her injured child.. At home, the viewers feel sympathy for these victims of war, just as they have for countless other women and children many times before.. This woman and her child could be from anywhere; the violence raging around them about anything, for this is the standard fare of conflict reporting.. Despite the fact that Women and Media was identified as one of the 12 critical areas of concern in the Beijing Platform for Action in 1995, there has been little change in mainstream media; the perspectives on women are rarely nuanced, especially in conflict situations.. The Right to Communicate: Women in the Information Society.. Communication Rights in the Information Society (CRIS) is a campaign to ensure that communication rights are central to the information society and to the upcoming World Summit of the Information Society (WSIS).. The campaign is sponsored and supported by the Platform for Communication Rights, a group of NGOs involved in media and communication projects around the world, of which WACC is a part.. As part of the campaign, CRIS members are producing a series of papers for the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) as input to the WSIS.. This is an abstract of one of the papers by Dafne Plou, a  ...   universal remedy to the problems of underdevelopment.. The international community is increasingly promoting the use of ICTs by marginalized groups as a sure-fire way to ensure their inclusion in the evolving information society and thus in the development of their communities and country.. Yet, this unconditional support for ICTs has been accompanied by only sparse analysis of the conditions necessary for such marginalised groups to truly harness the power of ICTs for their own empowerment.. ICTs have only recently emerged on the African continent and especially in the Francophone African region.. Women are currently marginal users of ICTs and have had very little participation in formulating the policies, strategies, regulations and norms that are guiding the development of ICT infrastructure in the region.. As such, there is a risk that ICTs will ultimately reinforce gender inequalities, rather than become the magic solution that has been touted.. Section J: A Women’s Revolution.. The 20th century will go down in history as a century of paradigms.. During this short period in the long history of humanity, two revolutions took place, both of which profoundly changed relations between men and women.. The effects of this double revolution are evident in the every day lives of millions: in their relationships; in motherhood; in the world of work; in approaches to sexuality; in people’s emotions; in love; and in the construction of personal identity..

  • Title: Issue 11 - Networking for Peace
    Descriptive info: Issue 11 - Networking for Peace.. Networking for Peace.. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are evolving at breakneck speed as the industrial society that marked the 20th century rapidly gives way to the information society of the 21st century.. Within this context, the international community has become increasingly focused on the linkages between ICTs and development.. ICTs are now seen as the magic solution to the problems of economic development, healthcare and education as well as strengthening civil society, promoting democracy, and making governments more accountable.. At the same time as ICTs are promoted as the panacea to the curse of underdevelopment, there is a recognition that those who most need the boost that ICTs can provide are least able to take advantage of it.. The Know How Conference: A Safari into the Cross-Cultural World of Women’s Knowledge Exchange.. “We believe that by bringing all the parties to one venue, remarkable relationships between research, activism and information flow will be utilized, a lasting partnership established, and a design of learning and sharing will act as our strong future bridge.. ”..

Whose wings were broken one day and who lived without flying.. The quiet nest became her high skies,.. A place for her to sing and space to fly.. And even you, bird, if they took away your wings,.. Tweet loudly saying that you are angry.. Try until one day you become strong,.. For the cry of the  ...   Asian Network of Women in Communication (ANWIC), a WACC-related network linking women’s communication groups in 14 Asian countries.. ANWIC’s previous series of workshops were on Gender, Media Awareness and Advocacy.. Media at the Crossroads.. Supinya Klangnarong, who has spent the last six years campaigning for the reform and democratisation of the state-managed media in Thailand, is this year undertaking an MA in Communication Policy, supported by WACC’s Training Assistance Programme.. For Supinya, the academic knowledge that she has gained in the last year has been invaluable in equipping her to critique the approach of those in Thailand who are against broadcast reform.. As she explains, ‘it will allow me to argue confidently against the powers that be for a communication policy that advocates the right to communicate, that gives a voice to those denied one and that encourages the poor to create their own space in the public sphere’.. Here, Supinya discusses her thesis which analyses the opportunities and challenges of the new broadcasting reform in Thailand.. Forum: Gender and the Digital Divide.. The result is that ICTs are now seen as the magic solution to the multiple problems of economic development, healthcare and education as well as strengthening civil society, promoting democracy, and making governments more open and accountable.. The bridging of this ‘digital divide’, is therefore now high on the global development agenda with multi-lateral and bi-lateral agencies channelling millions of dollars into projects which aim to support the ability of the marginalized to harness the power of ICTs..
