June 30 2003

The Women's Forum for Researches and Training (WFRT) in cooperation with Frederic Ebert Stiftung (FES) is to organize a workshop for journalists on gender issues and the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). The workshop is planned to start from the 29th of June and will last until the 3rd of July at Sana'a International Hotel.
The workshop aims at developing journalists' skills and abilities to deal with issues regarding gender and discrimination against women and to provide journalists with accurate information and training to take up such topics in a professional manner.
It is worth noting that this is WFRT's third course with media representatives as it holds an annual training workshop for journalists on such important issues.
