Presentation

Yemen and Iraq are currently facing severe security instability, which has significantly affected the circumstances of the population, and of women in particular, who are increasingly marginalised and exposed to new threats. Moreover, journalism as practised in both countries remains a male-dominated environment. This is reflected not only in the absence of women in decision-making positions, but also in how information is covered by the media.

The Makanati project (which means "my place" in Arabic) promotes greater participation of women in Iraqi and Yemeni society and a better understanding of their concerns by the population, particularly through the production and dissemination of content about them. It also seeks to raise awareness among journalists and future journalists regarding gender equality and women's rights.

Finally, it contributes to improving the professional skills of female journalists in order to promote their access to decision-making positions.
