12 December 2015/ UNESCO Havana/Portal of Culture of Latin America and the Caribbean

Dr Isabel Moya Richards, Director of the Cuban Women’s Publishing House, participated in the International Development Cooperation Meeting on Gender and Media, as well as in the First General Assembly of the Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAG), held from 7 to 10 December 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland, organized by UNESCO, in collaboration with GAMAG.

The UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean and UN Women contributed to the participation in these events of this outstanding social communicator and researcher, expert on Gender, with the support of the Office of the Resident Coordinator of the United Nations system in Cuba.

Dr Moya presented in both meetings the advances made in Cuba in the implementation of the campaign led by the U.N. Secretary-General “UNiTE to put an end to violence against women and girls”, conceived in the Caribbean country as a space for convergence of the United Nations system, civil society, the government, academe and artists, with the leading participation of youths.

The International Development Cooperation Meeting on Gender and Media, which preceded the First GAMAG General Assembly, was essentially aimed at offering a platform for dialogue and promoting global partnerships among the different development agencies –including those of the U.N., as well as its funds and programmes–, the national and regional organizations for development, governments, international donors and the private sector in order to achieve gender equality in and through the media within the GAMAG framework.
