Women in the Media: The Beirut Consultation. (Beirut, Lebanon, February 19-24, 1978).
World Association for Christian Communication, London (England).
This report presents a summary of the experiences shared and presentations at a meeting attended by 20 women from different cultures, backgrounds, and situations who met to consider the role of women in the media, the responsible use of media, and the image of women portrayed there. Their main task was to find ways of helping the three sponsoring organizations--the World Association for Christian Communication, the World Council of Churches, and the World YWCA--to take action on the problems which exist in all countries. An outline of the problem areas and suggested practical guidelines are included, as well as the keynote address, a presentation on women in ecumenical communications work, and reports from Sweden, the Arab world, Asia, the Philippines, the Caribbean, and Africa. A participant list is provided. (Author/RAO)
