We recognise the media as a powerful tool for positive change in the community and believe that journalists play a significant role in challenging detrimental stereotypes that tolerate, allow, excuse and in some cases encourage violence against women and girls and other vulnerable groups.

For this reason, we have produced guidance materials to aid journalists, our partners in combating gender based violence, develop and produce well informed impactful reports.

This website and the guidance it delivers is complemented by a Facebook group that aims to encourage discussion and support among journalists reporting on GBV, as well as a series of posters for newsrooms.

This site was produced by UNFPA Lebanon, developed by Reem Maghribi, and is maintained in partnership with Sharq.Org and Fe-male.

All queries and complaints sent via the online form will be addressed by Sharq.Org
