Argentina now has a Network of Gender Editors. It is made up of nine journalists from different media in the country -among them TN– and have the support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
The Network is symbolically launched around November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. It will aim to “address the challenges faced by those who hold this position today for journalism with a gender and human rights perspective.”
“The Network will not only carry out activities and develop content, but will seek to systematize experiences and collective learning to take them as a reference when faced with new appointments for this position, in Argentina and in the region,” said the United Nations Population Fund in a statement. .
