On 8 March 2018, FEMM, in collaboration with the Directorate for Relations with National Parliaments, has organised an Inter-parliamentary Committee Meeting on "Empowering women and girls in media and ICTs: key for the future". The event has taken place in the European Parliament in Brussels, from 09.00 to 12.30.
The topic chosen this year retains global importance and is one that allows for in-depth examination. Media has the capacity to influence public opinion and frame information. At the same time, Information and communication technologies (ICTs) permeate all levels and areas of society. Both media and ICTs therefore have considerable potential in the promotion of women's empowerment. This prominent event has provided a global forum for an exchange of experiences and best practices in these areas.
