Issues which specifically effect women and girls tends are often under-reported globally, and in general, story telling often ignores them. To help counter this, with funding from the British Embassy in Phnom Penh, we have developed a programme which aims to help improve gender reporting in Cambodia.

Journalists are invited to apply for a three-day, in-depth and practically-based course, which will help them gain a better understanding of gender issues in Cambodia and further afield, and help them better research and report on them.

The course will look at the role and situation of women and girls in Cambodia, the challenges they face, and the opportunities they have. It will help you identify stories to cover and what story-angles to take.

You will learn how to ethically, safely, and thoroughly research stories, including how to interview women and girls. You will learn how to fact-check, and produce high-quality engaging editorial material that tells clear unbiased stories that give women and girls a voice.

Following the course, one-to-one mentoring support will be offered to help journalists develop and have published insightful stories.

You will receive a course certificate if you attend the training.


Only for journalists based in Cambodia.

To apply you must also have at least two years professional experience as a journalist, or be a regular contributor to broadcast, print, or online media. You must show a strong interest in gender issues and have a strong commitment to reporting on these, and of gender-balanced reporting in general. The course will be conducted in both English and Khmer, and you will need to understand and speak English fairly well.

Reporting Women
  • Women are under-represented in the media and news coverage frequently reinforces gender stereotypes. High quality reporting of women's issues can empower societies, and improve the lives of women.
