IMS has just published a new update of the IMS reader on gender and sexuality, Navigating a changing world: Media’s gendered prism - The reader is filled with fabulous journalism produced by IMS partners worldwide – from Myanmar and Pakistan to Syria and Colombia – that address the violations and resistance which occur as consequence of and response to patriarchal society.


In celebration of the online gender reader, a panel of experts will discuss the definition of and reflect on the reach, limits and opportunities provided by intersectional feminist journalism – especially after the Covid-19 pandemic put at risk many of the gains made globally for gender equality and human rights.
