selected by the 21st Century Women Media Network

The 'Equal Media Award of the Year,' founded by the 21st Century Women Media Network in 2000 to realize gender equality in the media and to protect the rights of women media workers, awarded the first prize to The Women's News. 

The Network announced that it had chosen The Women's News in recognition of the paper's contribution to breaking down gender discriminatory prejudices in mass media and spreading the culture of gender equality. 

Since its founding in 1988, The Women's News, the leading paper in feminist journalism, has worked to discover women's problems ignored by the established press and to solve them based on feminist theories, thereby contributing to raising women's awareness and their status in society. In particular, the paper has provided in-depth reports on legal and institutional controversies involving women and on the exclusion of women from politics. This, the Network explained, earned the paper high marks for its contribution to enhancing women's participation in politics and their political empowerment. 

The runner-up prize went to the KBS drama <Love and War Clinic for Spouses> for surfacing hidden problems between spouses while providing an opportunity for viewers to participate by sharing their thoughts and searching for solutions together. Sharing the runner-up prize was EBS producer Kang Young Sook's <21st Century Lectures for Women> for planning and making programs that approached women's issues through a variety of themes.

The consolation prize went to representative Chon Sang Geum of the Media World Open-minded People, and the special prize to MBC producers Roh Hyuk Jin and Kim Sae Byol, who produced an edition of the documentary program <Producer's Pocketbook> entitled "Sexual Violence against Children - An Ongoing Nightmare."

The 21st Century Women Media Network held its 4th anniversary celebrations and the 3rd Equal Media Awards Ceremony at 6 pm on July 12, at the Korea Press Foundation.
