Podcast: Amsterdam conference – Media and the image of women

In this podcast, Liri Kopaci-Di Michele previews the start of a two-day conference in Amsterdam which focusses on media and the image of women.

“We are not attacking the media, we are engaging with the media,” the Gender Equality and Violence Against Women Head of Division says. “The purpose of this conference is to put forward good practice. This is concern that is shared by all, including men. The purpose is to engage, to have a dialogue, to exchange experiences and to see how we can move forward.”

The 4 -5 July event is organised by the Council of Europe’s Gender Equality Commission and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands.

It will bring together government officials from 47 member states and representatives of gender equality organisations, media and civil society.
