Russia's invasion on February 24, 2022 of Ukraine has set off the largest armed conflict in Europe since World War II. The war in Ukraine is having a disproportionate impact on women, who are facing immense hardship when it comes to health, safety, and access to food. But the actual battle field does not stop on the ground. Equally important is the communication and media battle field in Ukraine facing disinformation and Russia’s propaganda. What are current developments here? How are Russia’s efforts countered? And what are we to expect in the coming months? We are grateful to be able to discuss these questions and the role of women with Nataliya Gumenyuk, a distinguished Ukrainian journalist who specializes in foreign affairs and conflict reporting. She is the founder of the Public Interest Journalism Lab; as well as the co-founder and chair of the public television NGO, Hromadske.
In our #femalechangemaker event series moderator Karoline Gil speaks to women from all around the world, who are fighting for more democratic and free societies and are changing them in meaningful ways.
With this online discussion, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Friedrich Naumann Foundation contributes to making the UN´s Agenda 2030 - especially regarding human rights and rule of law - more known.
