UNIFEM partners with Geena Davis

January 15, 2010

The United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) welcomes Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis as a partner in the effort to change the way media represents women and girls, to encourage media to present and investigate issues of grave importance to women and to use a “gender” lens when reporting. As the founder of the non-profit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media (GDIGM) and its programming arm, See Jane, Ms. Davis brings her media expertise to advocate for gender equality and women’s empowerment.
