UN DAW to Organize an Online Discussion and
Expert Group Meeting on Women and Media

The United Nations Division for the Advancement of Women (UNDAW) is 
organizing an online discussion on the topic "participation and access of 
women to the media as instruments for the advancement and empowerment of 
women" from 26 August to 27 September 2002.

The online discussion will focus on media as a tool for the promotion of 
women's advancement and gender equality. It hopes to gather examples of 
good practice and useful experiences that could be widely applied, and at 
the same time to underline some of the emerging issues. It also aims to 
identify the extent to which media policies, guidelines, or codes of 
conduct take account of gender perspectives, and to highlight any effective 
enforcement mechanisms. Ways of improving women's access to and employment 
in the media as well as the factors affecting media content and gender 
portrayal will likewise be discussed. The discussion will also tackle the 
impact of the growth of new communication and information technologies, 
including the Internet, on media professions and media content.

The outcomes of the online discussion will be presented at the Expert Group 
Meeting which is being organized by the UN DAW, in collaboration with the 
United Nations Department of Public Information, and the United Nations 
Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). It will be held 
in Beirut, Lebanon from 12 to 15 November 2002.

Consequently, the results of the Expert Group Meeting and the online 
discussion will serve as inputs to the 47th Session of the UN Commission on 
the Status of Women in March 2003. The outcome of the Commission's 
deliberations will also be a contribution to the forthcoming World Summit 
on the Information Society.

Media practitioners, media advocacy groups, representatives of academia and 
research institutions, women's organizations and other NGOs working on the 
issue of media and ICT, and all other groups and individuals interested in 
media issues are invited to participate in the online discussion.

To register, send an e -mail to Arlene Sciancalepore at requesting to be registered. Please include your full 
name and country of origin.
