The UAE Women's Federation will be holding a two-day Arab media forum starting from February 2, under the patronage of H. H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, wife of the President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and Chairwoman of the federation. The forum is being convened following a decision taken by the extraordinary Arab Women's Summit held in Cairo in November 2000, and co-organised by the UAE General Women's Union, Egyptian National Women's Council, Lebanese Al Hariri Foundation and the Arab League General Secretariat to coincide with Arab Women's Day on February1, said Ihlam Al Lamky, assistant to the Director-General Women's Union Activities and Committees, according to a report in Khaleej Times. Academic researchers, women in the media, representatives of Arab women's organisations as well as regional women's organisations will participate in the forum. The forum will tackle a range of issues related to women in various fields and discuss a draft media code of ethics for women calling for objectivity in media coverage of women's issues and opening up careers in the media for women, Lamky said. Women who are already in the field of print and electronic media will be relating their experiences. The convening of the Arab women's media forum in Abu Dhabi underscores UAE's keenness to bring about substantive changes in women's status in all fields including the media sector, she said. This orientation has been clearly manifested in the abundance of university media training programmes in the country where female enrolment levels range from 70 to 80 per cent in mass communication departments, she added.
