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”.

Serenella Molendini, “Peace Envoy,” receives the award that artist Salvatore Sava designed and made for the guests of the Forum of Mediterranean Women Journalists. The title of the work is “The Pillar of Peace.”

By Daniela Celestino

She has been alongside Giulia, the network of autonomous united women journalists, since it was founded and took root in Puglia. Serenella Molendini, an equality councilor for the Puglia Region for 16 years, has worked extensively with women for women, at all times of critical issues, manifestations of gender discrimination, and the exercise of abuse.

The Equality Council, a public official emanation of the Ministry of Labor, strongly supported the organization of the first Mediterranean Women Journalists’ Forum as a natural continuation of the long-standing collaboration with both Giulia and Corecom in examining and combating any inequality. With Giulia giornaliste, in view of the realization of the first edition of the Forum and the drafting of a protocol for the use of gender language in public administrations, universities, and the media, he signed a convention for the enhancement of a gender narrative and the promotion of the use of gender language in public administrations, universities in Puglia, and the media.

And while her commitment is also to stand by women in promoting ex officio actions in court to protect those discriminated against and to be a civil party in criminal proceedings, Molendini finds that it is equally necessary to stand by journalists, women, sent to conflict hot spots. For them, “it adds difficulty to difficulty,” he explains, “doing such work is a huge cultural, social and professional challenge for these women because they challenge established formal and conceptual canons.”

For the councilwoman, the Forum was a concentration of great emotions, “of punches in the stomach,” which on the one hand create empathy, strong shares, and on the other “give the dimension of how little real information manages to reach us.” “Having this measure must be a commitment that must involve the attention of institutions, so that these women who are active on dangerous, slippery, treacherous terrain-be it war scenarios, mafia places, work environments-don’t feel loneliness. They are the heroines of our times, we need to accompany them in their taking charge of narrating suffering, allow their chronicle to reflect them, to be a gendered narrative.”[/fusion_text][/fullwidth]
