  • Internews Condemns the Attack on Employees of Tolo TV in Kabul, Afghanistan

    Thursday, January 21, 2016

    A suicide bomb attack targeting a vehicle transporting staff of Tolo TV in Kabul, on 20th of January 2016, has led to at least 7 deaths and injured dozens of people.

    Chime for Change, a global platform for supporting women’s voices, invited us to contribute two videos about remarkable women we work with who are courageously working in media in very difficult situations – Myanmar, South Sudan and Ukraine.

    When the world consumes media – online or traditional – only 10% of all stories they see, hear or read feature women.

    We believe that women's inclusion and participation in media and information is critical to helping our daughters see the range of their possibilities in life.
