A media practitioner and gender advocate has urged colleagues in the media fraternity, especially female journalists, to help break the bias against women and promote gender equality.

Josephine Oppong-Yeboah says female journalists have greater responsibility to help advance the cause of women in society and increase reportage on issues affecting them and their development.

For her, women and girls continue to face many challenges in their day-to-day activities, expressing the worry that some women cannot own their property in some parts of the country or have access to land.

Ms Josephine made the remarks ahead of this year’s International Women’s Day celebration marked globally on March 8.

Women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements are highlighted on the day.

The 2022 celebration is on the theme: “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.”

Ms Josephine said that when female media practitioners, who better understand women’s problems, take an interest in highlighting the challenges of women in society, it will help the larger society to help address them.

Josephine Oppong-Yeboah is an award-winning media personality with over 20 years of experience in broadcast journalism.

Due to her particular interest in gender-related issues, she covers the UN Commission on the Status of Women and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities at the UN Headquarters every year.
