Encouraging female journalists in the media sector in South Sudan is important in promoting diversity and ensuring that women’s voices are heard.
Association for Media Development in South Sudan (AMDISS) through its training wing, the Media Development Institute (MDI) continue to provide opportunities for women to advance their leadership positions in media organizations.
AMDISS has worked collaboratively with the Female Journalists Network (FJN), Union of Journalists in South Sudan (UJOSS), National Press Club (NPC), and Youth Media in South Sudan (YMISS) in empowering Journalists and ensure the safety of female journalists, both online and offline.
The above-mentioned institutions have been providing support and training to media practitioners on how to deal with harassment and threats in their fields of practice while carrying out their duties with the utmost professional ethics.
AMDISS and UJOSS have established a strong working relationship with the government in order to create a free and unchallenged media environment for Journalists to report on stories without fear of retribution.
