The theme for this year’s – “Media and Information Literacy (MIL) and Gender” – seeks to highlight good practices in this area and emphasize the importance of fostering media and information literate societies as a way to improve the understanding of women and men about gender perspectives in media and information systems.

UNESCO together with its partners are inviting media organizations, professional associations, journalists’ unions, women and men working in the media and civil society to use this platform to share your thoughts on how MIL can help women and men understand gender equality and to challenge the media to address this issue. Are you promoting or do you have plans to promote MIL in your media organization? How are you doing this? Do you think MIL can help to address gender equality? What programmes or activities have you implemented in your countries and communities? What were some of your challenges? How did you involve the media, women and men? What are some of the creative ways you have used MIL to mainstream gender issues?

Through these and other questions, share your, experience, good practices and recommendations in considering gender equality and media and information literacy. Kindly submit your contribution to us by 30 March 2011 using the Join the campaign form. They will contribute to inform UNESCO’s decision to support MIL initiatives and will be featured on the ‘Women Make the News 2011” web page.
