Human Rights Education Workshop for Journalists
Violence against women is a worldwide human rights scandal. From birth to death, in times of peace as well as war, women face discrimination and violence at the hands of the state, the community and the family. This pack is designed for human rights educators working with journalists. It includes detailed instructions on how to organize and run a two-day workshop for news journalists working in print, broadcast and electronic media. The material explores the causes and consequences of violence against women and the legal mechanisms and tools available to combat such violence. It makes clear that women's rights are human rights and encourages participants to incorporate work on women's rights into their daily journalistic practice. The pack includes all necessary supporting materials for each session, such as case studies, facilitator's tips and handouts, as well as a list of useful resources and background information.
