We used the thirty-fourth edition of the Africa in Focus show to discuss the newly-formed communications Network on Women, Peace & Security and UNSCR 1325, which stresses the participation of women in peace & security.
We spoke to Head of Women, Peace & Security Institute, Margaret Alexander-Reheboth, who stressed that the role the Media can play is by daily, and regularly, telling positive stories about women.
On Catherine Appiah-Pinkrah's part, she spoke as a representative of the Ministry of Defence, which remains one of the implementers of the UNSCR1325. She equally-stressed the role of the media, and talked of how discussions on 1325 was an opportunity to also tell the world the stories of Ghana's revered Peace & Security Architecture -- as exemplified by structures such as the National Peace Council.
The Network is here to stay, and the advocacy is on...to ensure that those Communicators that make up the steering committee, including Radio XYZ, keep stories around 1325 alive!
