Adapted invitation to tender for logistics coordination of Women and Media in Conflict Zones

The Project: Women and Media in Conflict Zones

Yemen and Iraq are today facing serious security instability that has severely affected the situation of the population, especially women, who are increasingly marginalized and exposed to new threats.
Moreover, journalism as it is practiced in both countries is still dominated by men. This results not only in the absence of women in decision-making positions, but also in the processing of information.
Faced with this situation, the project aims at greater participation of women in Iraqi and Yemeni societies and a better understanding of their concerns by the population as a whole, particularly through the production and dissemination of content.
Thus, it is necessary to sensitize women and men students and journalists both on issues related to gender equality, but also on women's rights. These rights must also be reinforced in legislation.
Another need is to strengthen the professional skills of women journalists to support their ability to access decision-making positions in the media. The project aims also to ensure that the image of women in the media is improved in the media and in the societies in general.

This tender aims to define the need for the logistical organization of Women and Media in Conflict Zones seminar on the 7th of April in Cairo.
