Parallel Session 3: Women and Children Issues: Is Media Doing Enough?

Violence, abuse, inequality and discrimination against millions of women and children across the globe remain a hindrance to efforts to make their life a little better. The damage to these victims is staggering, its impact a menace to development and society. Is media doing enough to address the deadly crime of violence and abuse against women and children? Is it reporting enough to deal with inequality and discrimination as well as the advancement of women in today’s society? Can social media and citizen journalism help?
