Violence against women: Media urged to form ‘sensitised’ code of conduct

KARACHI: A workshop was organised to emphasise a code of conduct for the media with regard to violence against women, under the aegis of White Ribbon Campaign Pakistan here at a local hotel the other day.

Raana Malik of the University of Punjab Gender Studies Department conducted the workshop having several segments including multimedia presentations, roundtable discussions and group activities designed to train the journalists’ community for a sensitised code of conduct with regard to violence against women.

During the roundtable discussion, participants pointed out several lapses in the collective behaviour of the society toward women.

Participants discussed how the entire society particularly media exploited women for their vested interests.

Moot reached at a consensus that journalists’ community should educate the masses, instead of only delivering information. They stressed the need of positive portrayal of women, sensitisation and a firm code of conduct for the media.

On the occasion, Malik shared her analysis that the base of violence against women lied in the pure minds by basic institution of the society.
