Workshop to train reporters on covering domestic violence

A training workshop on how to collect information when covering domestic violence opened on September 29 in the northern city of Hai Phong for reporters from national and local newspapers.

The two-day course, organised by the Vietnam Women’s Union ’s central committee and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), aims to introduce journalists to a rights-based approach to stories o­n domestic violence.

Reporters at the workshop are discussing and sharing information o­n ways to access information, as well as attending lectures and viewing films o­n case studies.

The course is expected to help improve journalists’ practical skills so they can produce timely, high-quality stories that will help prevent domestic violence and reduce gender inequality in the country in the long term.
