The IFJ has published a new booklet looking at women’s participation in journalists’ unions, issues preventing women achieving a work/life balance and steps to combat violence and harassment at work across Central and Eastern Europe.

The study - Initiates file downloadMaking Our Voices Heard – was based on surveys carried out with IFJ affiliates across the region.

The IFJ hopes the results will help spark debate, encourage women journalists and their unions to get organised and to promote and win crucial reforms in the struggle to achieve equality and rights.

Recommendations and resources for the toolkit have been gathered from a wide variety of sources, including other unions, global union federations, ITUC, ETUC and other labour and journalist organisations, as well as those that specialise in dealing with gender-based violence and harassment issues, both within and outside the region.

The full findings of the survey will be discussed at the IFJ’s Gender Council conference in May.
