Media Talk on Gender Sensitive Coverage

On 22 February 2022, “Media Talk: How (not) to cover? - gender sensitive issues” was organized in cooperation with the Charter of Journalistic Ethics of Georgia. The event was supported by the Embassy of Norway to Georgia and the Norwegian Press Complaints Commission and was aimed at providing the journalists with the guidance on how to cover gender sensitive topics.

The discussion was opened by Helene Sand Andresen, H.E. Ambassador of the Kingdom of Norway to Georgia and Natalia Voutova, Head of the Council of Europe Office in Georgia. Invited speakers from Norway and Georgia addressed the following topics:

  • How to avoid reinforcing existing gender stereotypes?
  • How to cover the genderbased violence?
  • How to strengthen women’s voices in the media?
  • How to educate professional and young journalists about gendersensitive coverage?

While the event was held for journalists, the attendance to the latter was open to all public.

These series of webinars are organised within the framework of the Council of Europe Project on “Strengthening Freedom of Media, Internet Governance and Personal Data Protection in Georgia”, which is funded by the Council of Europe Action Plan for Georgia 2020-2023.
