Women, Media and Communication Revolution Challenges Conference

Which will be held on Tuesday, February 14th, 2017 at the Zafer Al-Masri ‎Auditorium in the Old Campus


Today’s communication development affects people’s lives, behavior and ‎relations as well as systems of government worldwide.‎

This conference will discuss the effect of media and international development ‎on women of different social classes.‎

Because of this progress, women have started to have important positions and ‎are more involved in contemporary changes including media.‎


The conference aims at encouraging public opinion on women’s involvement in ‎media, improving women’s image in media and proposing solutions for ‎resulting problems. The conference also aims at offering new models that ‎protect the basic rights of Palestinian women with regard to dramatic social ‎changes resulted from the media revolution in the world.‎
