The Global Forum on Media and Gender held in Bangkok from 2 to 4 December 2013 marked the beginning of a global movement committed in promoting gender equality in and through the media. The Global Alliance for Media and Gender (GAMAG) is envisaged as a multi-stakeholder group of partners agreeing to combine efforts, and resources.
It will articulate a systematic follow-up to the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, “Women and the Media Diagnosis”, and its strategic objectives:
The Framework and Action Plan for the GAMAG is accessible through this link.
There have been elections for members of International Steering Committee (ISC) and ISC Executive Committee that would lead GAMAG’s work. The list of International Steering Committee members can be found through this link.
There are still a number of urgent next steps ahead of us. To this end, the GAMAG ISC meeting in Geneva (4-6 November) was committed, and its follow-up process is ongoing, to achieve the follow outcomes:
We must move rapidly to operationalize the ISC so that we can plan for the anniversary of the Beijing Declaration during the UN General Assembly meeting in September and the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meeting in March.
All partners of the Alliance are invited to join the discussion on these topics. Your contribution is crucial so join the debate now and let you voice be heard - create an account through this link: http:/
Purpose of the platform is to facilitate information gathering and exchange, and common development of ideas and projects among the multi-stakeholder team for each Action Line through collaborative and community oriented online tools.
