In many countries, women's opinions are dismissed. Women are not taught to ask questions and be part of a public debate. This makes it impossible to achieve inclusive societies. Access to information empowers women to claim their rights and make better decisions. https://t.co/E9E6aTC0R1

To serve the public, journalism must be accurate, independent, impartial, accountable, and show humanity. To enforce these core values, newsrooms and media organizations should adopt a code of conduct. The press must be accountable to the people! https://t.co/Tgt3FeK4sc MFAUganda photo

Dialogue improves relations and cooperation in the community, often enabling further development through social and political action. This could be a pretty impactful discipline to investigative and accountability #Journalists

Fake news is a big dent to online journalism and journalism in general. The reason why there is a lot of fake news online is the reason for competition - @ekiggundu of @nilepostnews
