Safety & Empowerment for Women in Media
We asked members to communicate about a crucial issue in their region and what women in media can do. From Iraq, Binay Shorsh writes: In Iraq, women face a lot of danger and threats and are killed if they defy traditions. Increasingly women are breaking the barriers and working in media, but they also face gender based online attacks.
"I never feel shame to confess that my society is killing women to keep traditions alive -- there is only one thing I am ashamed of ... the killing of women in my community."
