Building peace in the minds of men and women

Online registration opens for the global forum on media and gender

UNESCO and partners have opened registration for the Global Forum on Media and Gender (GFMG), which will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 2 to 4 December 2013. The Forum will be hosted by the Kingdom of Thailand National Commission for UNESCO and the Thammasat University.

This forum is a pioneering global event that intends to address gender equality and women’s empowerment in and through the media. A key output of the forum will be the establishment of a Global Alliance on Media and Gender which will coordinate systematic follow-up to one of the critical areas of concern of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (BDPA), “Women and the Media Diagnosis”.
