Nordic media activism and journalism


The media – how gender equal are they and what does today’s media-critical activism look like? The organisations behind this project wanted to look closer at these questions by arranging two seminars at the Nordic Forum in Malmö, Sweden in 2014. One seminar focused on journalism and the other on media activism.

The project was based on the Beijing Platform and its aims of increasing the influence and non-stereotypical portrayal of women in media. The organisations hope that the seminars will stimulate the media-critical debate in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Allt är Möjligt Media Watch Group and Feministiskt Perspektiv arranged two seminars at the Nordic Forum together with ENUT, Estland and Stigamot, Iceland. The purpose of the project was to plan and hold the seminars, and also to network to stimulate the media-critical debate in the Nordic and Baltic regions. The activities resulted, amongst other things, in ideas for a Nordic web journal/web agency.
