Brief Description

In 2016, a project “With the Media Towards Non-Stereotypical Reporting about Violence against Women and Domestic Violence” was implemented under the NGOs support programme, co-financed by the Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities. The aim of the project was to raise awareness of the media on appropriate reporting about VAW and domestic violence and to highlight their important role in influencing the public opinion and the general public’s tolerance towards VAW and gender stereotypes. Specific guidelines for the media and the expert public have been developed in order to achieve more appropriate reporting on VAW and domestic violence.
