The course, which concluded on Wednesday, is part of a project called “Initiative on Gender Equality and Girl Education in Vietnam: empowering girls and women for a more equal society”, jointly sponsored by UNESCO’s Vietnam Office, Radio the Voice of Vietnam, and the Ministry of Education and Training.
Hoang Minh Nguyet, UNESCO Communication and Information Program Coordinator, said: “Over the years, Vietnam’s media has contributed greatly to enhancing gender equality and education for girls and women. The achievements have been shown through Vietnam’s promulgation of the Law on Gender Equality and the Law on Domestic Violence Prevention and Control. But there remain gender preconceptions in the press and vestiges of male chauvinism in society. We hope that this course will improve reporters’ knowledge about gender equality and the need to educate girls and women.”
