Credit to me­dia for re­port­ing on do­mes­tic vi­o­lence

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

In the past few months, the trend­ing top­ics in the me­dia, es­pe­cially in print, have been fo­cussing on gen­der-based vi­o­lence. A good ex­am­ple is Jack­line Mwende, who was bru­tally at­tacked and had her hands chopped off by her hus­band. She re­cently flew back from South Korea, where she was fit­ted with pros­thetic limbs. The me­dia has done well in high­light­ing and fight­ing gen­der vi­o­lence. This has en­cour­aged more women to come out and tell their sto­ries. This has led to more civil so­ci­ety and hu­man rights or­gan­i­sa­tions of­fer­ing help.
