If you are a woman working on radio or television, someone is thinking about your welfare and career.
Robert Sempala of Human Rights Network for Journalists-Uganda (HRNJ-U) and Nankwanga Eunice Kasirye of International Association of Women in Radio and Television Uganda (IAWRT Uganda) have signed an agreement to work together to ensure women’s working environment and careers on radio and television thrive.
Ms Kasirye told Watchdog that the signed memorandum of Understanding would push for the media gender mainstreaming agenda.
“We are going to create awareness, train and sensitize the media their responsibility in pushing gender issues in their programming and publications”, she said.
HRNJ-U is a reputable journalists’ organization which fights for the rights of its members.
“Getting the media set the pace right from the practice…it’s time for media to not only report on gender issues but set an example and write own success stories,” said Nankwanga Eunice Kasirye.
She added, “We are empowering the media practitioners all around the country in gender mainstreaming responsibilities”.
