Our panellists will discuss the status of women in newsrooms and news output environments, what their position in the industry means for the voices we hear as journalists and the subjects of our journalism, and how the underrepresentation impacts the vulnerability of our female colleagues. We will discuss the threats women face online and offline, the work of Women in News in the region and examine their new sexual harassment policies. We will also consider the relationship between gendered practices and a lack of ethics and what that means for the broader industry – not just women -  and hear about a new gender analysis of the media landscape in Iraq. Our discussion will invite audience participation and is one to which both our female and male colleagues are very welcome to attend.

 ستتحدث اللجنة عن وضع السيدات في غرف الأخبار وعلى الأخبار وعن وضعهنّ في مجالنا هذا وكيفية انعكاسه على أصواتنا كصحافيّات وعلينا كسيدات بشكل سواء. والحديث عن سلبيات تهميش السيدات. سنستمع إلى التهديدات التي تواجهها النساء عند استخدامهن  الإنترنت وعلى أرض الواقع، وسنتحدث مطولا عن عمل برنامج "النساء في الأخبار" Women in News في المنطقة وعن سياسته الجديدة تجاه التحرش الجنسي. سنتطرق أيضاً إلى العلاقة بين الممارسات الجندرية وغياب أخلاقيات العمل الصحفي وانعكاسه على هذا القطاع بشكل عام، ليس على النساء فحسب. كما سنستمع أيضاً إلى تحليل جندري جديد في الساحة الإعلامية العراقية.
تتضمن الجلسة نقاش مع الحضور، لذلك ندعو كافة الزملاء من الذكور والإناث للحضور.
