Toronto, Canada – Friday, October 1, 2021
The growing reach of all forms of media through the internet and online social platforms has opened the doors to the instantaneous spread of harmful content that can reinforce attitudes that lead to gender-based violence (GBV). However, today’s fast access to news, television, film, and music also presents new opportunities for us to address gender inequalities and eradicate GBV.
Join the conversation in the fourth installment of KCA's webinar series and learn more about how the media can work to spread awareness and create the change needed.
