#16Pledges: IAWRT members around the world share their efforts and vision how they can contribute to eliminating violence against women

Broadcast journalist Sonia Capio of the Philippines: I pledge to journalists promoting gender and development advocacies in the Philippines and beyond.

I commit myself to uphold GAD mainstreaming in the Philippine media through webinars and online coverage. I will vigorously network with the campus media students and advisers to educate and train them on gender-responsive mass media despite the pandemic.

I also commit to strengthen camaraderie with the Philippine media practitioners, particularly fellow women broadcast and online journalists.
