CFI, the French Agency for Media Development, in partnership with AHJ, the Humanitarian Aid and Journalism organization and with the support of the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, is pleased to launch the #Makanatiproject for women and medias in Iraq and Yemen. 


The “Makanati” project encourages a wider participation of women in Iraqi and Yemeni societies and a better understanding by the local population of the challenges they face, particularly through the production and dissemination of information about women. It also aims to raise awareness among journalists and future journalists of the subject of gender equality in the media and women’s rights. 

The seminar will examine the latest developments, difficulties and challenges that are encountered, and will shed light on existing initiatives as well as sharing concepts and building a common vision of the “place” women should have in the Media in their respective countries, and within their specific contexts.  


The “Makanati” Seminar consists of 4 sessions, on Zoom platform in French, Arabic, English and Kurdish languages
