African Women in Media and Gender Violence Conference 30 November-1 December 2023- Kigali Marriott, Rwanda

Media and gender violence refer to the intersection of how media portrays gender and the perpetuation of violence against individuals based on their gender identity. This is not only limited to physical violence but also includes psychological, sexual and economic forms of violence. Recent statistics show that gender-based violence remains a prevalent global issue, disproportionately affecting women and girls. Similarly, women in media have long been subjected to gender-based discrimination and various forms of violence in their line of work, including sexual harassment. AWiM23 Rwanda brings together media practitioners, academia, policy actors and CSOs to share best practices and set actions to address these issues.
