[SDCPJ] "Women, Media, Revolution" Forum Oct. 5 to 7

"WOMEN, MEDIA, REVOLUTION" FORUM

SAN DIEGO, CA: From October 5 to October 7, the University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice will host "Women, Media, Revolution," a free public forum of films and panels exploring the perceptions of women reporting on and from conflict zones and how gender plays at all levels of coverage.

International panelists include traditional print and television journalists, alternative media network founders, bloggers and other social media contributors, as well as film directors capturing the challenges to the security and treatment of women in conflict situations like this year's Arab Spring. They will share their work for media outlets like Al Jazeera, NPR, The Guardian, The Times (London), and World Pulse, and the challenges of reporting and filmmaking in countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia.

Films including "Weapon of War," "The Sari Soldiers," and "The Price of Sex" will be screened followed by discussion with the directors.

Journalists will address questions such as:

Where are the women pictured with cell phones and posters during the uprisings now? What happens to reporters, their stories, their subjects, and citizens caught in conflict? Where does balanced and inclusive coverage come from, if corporate media does not cover stories about women and their role in changing societies?

One of the panels will include global reporters and young journalists linked via videoconference- ing from the sites where they are currently assigned and/or living. Women PeaceMakers from Haiti, India, Iraq and Kenya, who are in residence at the Institute for eight weeks, will respond in the final session to issues raised at the forum.

For the schedule of films and panel discussions with directors, producers, journalists, bloggers and the Women PeaceMakers, go to
