Liberia: CEMESP Trains Female Journalists, Bloggers on Women’s Rights Online Advocacy

MONROVIA – The Center for Media Studies and Peacebuilding (CEMESP) on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, conducted intensive training for female bloggers and journalists on ‘Women’s Rights Online Issues’ in Liberia. He said the training which is implemented in Ghana, Liberia, and Sierra Leone seeks to increase public awareness and respect for online rights, particularly women’s rights online rights as well as improve the digital literacy of least 200 women (female journalists, women’s rights activists, among others) to advocate for women’s rights online in the three West African countries. “As a first step for the intervention in Liberia, a database of female journalists, bloggers, and activists in Liberia has been built,” Mr. Joseph said adding that a one-day training workshop on women’s rights online issues was earlier held in Liberia to train 40 female journalists, bloggers, and activists. Participants at Tuesday’s training were introduced to Digital Rights, Social Media and Online Privacy, Identifying and Dealing with Online Abuses against Women, Digital Storytelling, and Digital Content Creation. At the end of the training CEMESP setup a WhatsApp group which will serve as a platform to enable the participants to continuously engage and also support each other in times of promoting women’s rights online and countering violation of women’s rights online.
