African Media Center Aids Female Journalists

The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) officially opened the African Women’s Media Center (AWMC). The IWMF was created to aid women journalists in Africa by providing training and networking possibilities.

An IWMF spokesperson said, “African women face enormous challenges in being accepted as serious professionals in a field traditionally dominated by men.” The Center will “work with existing women’s media organization to provide women journalists the support necessary to compete equally with their male colleagues.”

For more information, contact: Erin Uritus, Program Coordinator at the AWMC, B.P. 21186, Dakar-Ponty, Dakar, Senegal,. awmc@metissacana.sn, iwmfafrica@aol.com.
