Khabirat: Arabic-language directory of women experts

16.03.2017 / Created by Ffeuromed

The EU-funded MedMedia programme today launched an innovative online database aimed at enhancing the representation of women in news programming across the Southern Mediterranean Region.

Launched in the run-up to International Women’s Day on March 8, Khabirat is an online Arabic-language directory of women experts which has been designed for use by editorial teams at national media outlets.

The initiative is based on strong national partnerships with institutions such as public broadcasters, journalists’ unions, publishers, regulatory authorities and women rights’ groups. It aims to promote consistent national policies which improve women’s contribution to media outputs on a national and regional level.

The Khabirat directories, which are being developed across the region, will debut in Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan and Palestine, where special events are scheduled to showcase their content and resources.You will find more information here: http://www.med-media.eu/event/medmedia-launches-pioneering-khabirat-platforms-mark-international-womens-day/
