DISRUPTIVE MEDIA

Slide WE BELIEVE THAT MORE PROGRESSIVE MEDIA CAN HELP CREATE
A SOCIETY WHERE WOMEN CAN PLAY AN EQUAL ROLE.
Media is a powerful tool for change. When used well, it can break down barriers and allows us to see the world through the eyes of others. It elicits emotional reactions and and can lead to positive changes in behaviours and attitudes. The Womanity Foundation’s disruptive media programmes aim to transform power relations and shift societal norms.

Slide RADIO NISAA First women’s Arabic speaking radio station in the Middle East, broadcasting since 2010.

30% of listeners report changing behaviors as women or towards women post listening. 30% of the radio’s audience is male.

Broadcasting in all of the Palestinian territories, with an audience of 20% of the adult population in West Bank (approx. 340,000).
We created WeMean Media to strengthen our commitment to accelerating social change and creating positive impact. It is an Arabic digital media multi-platform dedicated to creating and distributing engaging content that challenges gender stereotypes and promotes a more inclusive society. WeMean Media recently launched Smi’touha Menni (‘You Heard It From Me’), a YouTube based satire show that debunks gender stereotypes and deconstructs common traditional narratives about gender.
