 “Women, Media, Revolution” is a free public forum to encounter frontline journalists, filmmakers and social media citizen activists engaged in the critical examination of women in conflict and how they are using their voices in a revolution against ongoing political and cultural violence.

Coverage of women during conflict often focuses solely on violations of women’s rights to physical security and psychological well-being. It must also unmask the cultural traditions that deny women’s human rights and involvement in decision-making that could change the course of violence in their communities.
