Often the victims of stereotypes and discrimination, female journalists are still under-represented in the Palestinian media, particularly in decision-making roles.

The Al Qadirat project, the name of which is Arabic for "they are capable", informs female journalists in Palestine of their rights and encourages the production of content on the subject of gender equality. It is supporting the professionalisation of 25 young women by offering them training and mentoring over a one-year period.

The project is being implemented in partnership with Radio Nisaa FM, the first Arabic-language radio station aimed at women in the Middle East.
