Shifting the Narrative

“Without facts, you can't have truth,” - Maria Ressa.

Despite the central roles women play in driving peace, dominant narratives on peace and security continue to position women as victims and exclude their voices. Men are significantly more visible as experts in news stories than women. In 2020, the Global Gender Monitoring Project found that only 24% of expert voices in the news are women.

NWI works to engage with the media, and through a variety of multimedia initiatives to challenge these narratives, and amplify the voices and messages of women activists.
