Basics and Principles of Gender Sensitive Media Coverage

In every sexual assault incident in Egypt, the media stands in a hostile position towards the victims/survivors, as it intentionally presents them in offensive manners and uses their personal lives and pictures without their permission, justifying violence against them. This is a clear violation of all national and international press and media laws and conventions that the media workers must abide by, as they must comply with the principles of honor, honesty, preservation of personal freedoms and protection of citizens’ rights.
