Anyone here been raped and speak English?’: workshops for editors and journalists on gender-based violence and sex-trafficking
Editors and journalists who have been trained to understand issues of gender-based violence and human rights can have a positive influence on educating public and political understanding of these issues. This article describes two workshops held recently in Senegal and Albania for male and female editors and journalists. The UNFPA workshop for journalists and editors from six African countries in post-conflict situations, held in Senegal, was deliberately scheduled to coincide with the Dakar film festival on gender-based violence. The purpose of the UNFPA strategy was to achieve extensive media coverage in these six countries. The Albanian workshop for local and national media took place in Tirana as part of a three-year project against sex-trafficking, conducted by the NGO Albanian Centre for Population and Development in partnership with the Mediterranean Women’s Studies Centre.
