Supporting Women in Media and Information

When women's voices are heard, when women produce the news, the information we all consume improves.

Internews has launched a five-year global initiative that will:

  • Ensure safe access to information for women and girls in some of the world’s most challenging places
     
  • Empower women by building their leadership in the media, information and communications technology fields
     
  • Improve the information we all consume by promoting more stories produced by, for and about women

At Internews, we have worked for the past three decades to train tens of thousands of women leaders in the media and information sectors.

From Pakistan to South Sudan, we have developed programs that cover under-reported topics and bring women and girls into conversations about the environment, politics, and the economy. These programs, and the women who lead them, are changing local attitudes, impacting policies, and inspiring women and girls around the world to raise their voices and make a difference.
