25 Journalists Begin ‘Gender Sensitive’ Reporting Training Monday 

MONROVIA, May 16 (LINA) -The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) will Monday start a three-day training of 25 journalists in gender sensitive reporting in Monrovia.

PUL Secretary-General D. Kaihenneh Sengbeh said the training of which the participants are predominantly females, is part of a broader women-reporting- women project.

The training involves the West African Journalists Association (WAJA) and the Norwegian Journalist Association, according to a PUL release issued at the weekend.

The workshop is a regional initiative, aimed at improving the quality of gender sensitive reporting that seeks to encourage and enhance in-depth analysis and debates on issues concerning women.

The training will also offer skills and knowledge to those who report women issues, but not necessarily equipped with the right tools to give a fresh, insightful perspective into subjects.

They are domestic violence, rape, inheritance, divorce, sexual harassment, sexual abuse, lack of access to education and health and reproductive rights, women and the economy.

The program is based on the reality of a very few women journalists—and even fewer men—who can give a fresh, insightful perspective into issues that concern women.

In-depth analysis and debates on issues that have a negative impact on women’s development are similarly limited inside newspapers, and most women contents on TV and radio focus on beauty, fashion, food and household programs.

Two renowned female Liberian journalists Torwon Sulonteh-Brown and Mae Azango will facilitate the three-day workshop, along with Hamadou Tidiane Sy of E-jicom

Torwon and Mae were among several journalists who participated in a training of trainers’ workshop to implement the Women Reporting Women Project.
