Seminário de NEWARK

The main goal is to create awareness among migrant women and men regarding gender stereotypes, sub-valorization or distortions and discriminations that affect the image of women in the communities’ media and generate ways to become conscious and denounce those situations – every time media don’t follow, indeed, the evolution of reality or don’t help its development, in this domain or in a dynamic perspective.
In order to prepare students, association members and journalists, we recommend a previous exercise of reading or listening to media programs/ shows of the Portuguese community or other foreign communities, as well as American, for a first comparative analysis of its content, in this specific area of influence.
Target public: College students; journalists, association directors
Documents to hand in: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights; Convention concerning elimination of all forms of discrimination against women; Practical Guide of Journalist (rights and duties, rules of behavior); Newspapers and taped local programs/ shows.
