MOSA organizes a workshop on “reporters in the ICT age” in Beirut to strengthen women’s participation in local governance


The Ministry of Social Affairs organized last week a training workshop on “reporters in the age of ICT” with the participation of several reporters and representatives of Lebanese political parties and women NGOs.  The workshop was implemented within the framework of the MOSA project entitled “strengthening women’s participation in local governance and development” which is funded by the office of Italian development aid within the Italian Embassy.  The workshop focused on the role of the media while highlighting key issues related to the law as well as using social media tools to support women and human rights.  The director of the project, Zeina Abdel Khalek, noted that the project will be launching a campaign next month focusing on women’s participation in decision making.  University professor, Jean Pierre Katrib, spoke on media coverage from a legal perspective as well as women’s participation in governance.  He highlighted the obstacles that the media faces and called for overturning the historical marginalization of women.
