Media Action Network

A Media Focused Nonprofit For Social Change

Finding Focus and Meaning Each Month

Our mission at the medes is to highlight and focus on social injustices seen around the world. These injustices come in many forms and can change people lives. This year the medes is looking to assist in the monthly efforts to bring awareness and support to issues that are targeted each month. While not all publications will fall under these targeted areas, it is chance to assist in these awareness issues and offer more education opportunities during these designated times.

 

MARCH: Gender Equality Month and Women’s History Month

It is no lie that your experience in this life is greatly affected by the gender that our physical body suggests, and by the gender we choose to display. For many people these two are the same, but for those individuals who experience gender differently, the world can be full of closed doors. Social injustices surrounding gender equality and discrimination are wrong and yet difficult to defeat. As we look back at women’s history this month and recall many of the brave battles that were fought on behalf of women’s rights, remember there are still battles raging on that need the support of many. Be an advocate for gender equality.
