In a globalized world, information is a key resource. Not a single social transformation or political programme can be enacted without managing information flows. For many years now, the womens movement in Russia and the world has existed in an information vacuum. Media outlets create the news agenda through traditional means: seeking sensation, conflict, and more recently to entertain their audience. At the same time, social initiatives spearheaded by womens movements, important government decisions, changes in legislation, and stories highlighting womens successes and achievements still garner little coverage.
Topics for discussion:
- How can women today gain access to vital information?
- How can information equilibrium be provided in the digital age?
- How can information flows be employed to preserve peace?
