Chi siamo

Il Forum è nato dalla giornalista Marilù Mastrogiovanni ed è organizzato da Giulia Giornaliste e dalla cooperativa IdeaDinamica, con l’obiettivo di “creare ponti, abbattere muri: promuovere una riflessione sul giornalismo delle giornaliste investigative, come presidio di Democrazia, dunque di Pace”.

I extend to you my warmest wishes for the initiative you are engaged in today and tomorrow in Bari and Lecce. I deeply agree with the choice of the ‘Forum of Mediterranean Women Journalists’ to focus on the voices of women from conflict zones. Women are both those who pay, along with their children, the highest price of wars, and those who can give their societies valuable reform energies, starting with the very delicate stages of reconstruction. I have been able to verify this both in my previous work for United Nations agencies and in my current involvement, which often brings me to meet with women’s organizations that play an absolutely decisive role in the growth of their countries.

Yes, there is a gender perspective in the narrative of wars and the possible exit from wars. That is why it is relevant that more and more women journalists are reporting on the conflict terrain. The ‘submitters,’ as it is obvious to call them and as too many news outlets still refuse to do. Producing the strange effect that I happened to notice recently about the U.S. election: there were many female journalists reporting on it, but the TV underpieces stubbornly quoted ‘our correspondent.’ That is why I am also with you in your commitment with which you emphasize that ‘language restores visibility and recognition to women.’ We have many good reasons on our side, which even the Accademia della Crusca has authoritatively certified, and together we will know how to be more tenacious than those who, lacking solid arguments, continue to ridicule a serious cultural issue.
