From our experience in the Women's Consultations Unit, we have heard and recorded many stories about the violations against women in the Palestinian society. We want through our project to train a number of 20 social media activists who are going to produce social media content (Photo essays, blogs, audio recordings, and videos) about these women. 30 training hours will be giving and training manual will be distributed.
“Global Media Monitoring Project” address a very serious issue and shall record the first precedent in this regard. The aim of the project is to promote communication for social change through; – Building the of Palestinian women’s rights activists in monitoring the representation of the Palestinian women in the local media. – Supporting the Palestinian women to improve their representation in the local media .
It seeks to a step by step process in qualifying the ages from 10-16 to be a good bloggers for their town history,starting by mobile photographs , publishing process and how they can make a story around the photos, how this kind of work will affect the olders through the network…..
The project aims to monitor life of Palestinian people living in villages adjacent to settlements, to modify their “shutted voice” to “raised voice” to international forums and to all over the world. Directly through photography (video, photograph and word) and spread it across social media networking through individual or collective pages. A group of young women living in those areas will be selected, as they're absent from media work field.
