“For the fourth time this year, the Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB) has joined the campaign to raise awareness on violence against women,” said Tinatin Berdzenishvili, GPB Director General.
According to Tinatin Berdzenishvili, a 16-campaign is planned at the GPB.
“Unfortunately, the statistics on violence against women are not favorable, though some progress is observed across the world. The media should contribute to the progress to grow further.
First of all, this involves raising awareness to know well what is violence and what we are talking about. We, through radio, television and online media-allocated information campaigns, plan to dedicate 16 days to this day. It is significant to note that the building lit in red color can be found not only in Georgia. Approximately 5,000 organizations from 187 countries joined the campaign. For the fourth year, we are joining this campaign. A 16-day campaign is planned at the GPB.
We want our viewers to be engaged in raising awareness on violence against women and for these programs to be interactive. I think, our organization culture is very healthy, though, despite that, we try to create such an environment where our employees deliver each message to the population correctly. This was exactly our purpose,” she said.
Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB) joined in marking November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The GPB building has been lit in red color.
