Hello and Salam to you beautiful peaceful bridge makers.
Journalists report on women in Muslim and Middle Eastern countries when their rights are violated. But they report on women in Western societies when their rights are respected, according to Islamophobia and Media Portrayal of Muslim Women, a text analysis of U.S. News coverage, by Rochelle Terman.
Is there a way to challenge this reality?
I think there is.
Salam again, My name is Sara Jamshidi, publisher of Goltune.com.
Here at Goltune we are a group of passionate, professional women looking to bridging the gap between Muslims and non-Muslims in the U.S. and around the world.
With the Goltune website and our Peacemindedly podcast, we seek to reverse the media’s long-held, negative perception of Islam by using peace journalism to connect and inspire.
On this season, we are starting our season 5 on Peacemindedly podcast tomorrow.
Our fist episode is dedicated to The Beauty of the Houri: Heavenly Virgins, Feminine Ideals.
We have a range of amazing discussions with our guests about food, culture, feminism, Afghanistan and Ukraine.
We are also launching our first pledge campaign ever. And we are very excited about that.
Please join us to amplify women voices through peace journalism.
Please become one of our peaceful Bridge Makers by pledging $50, $35, $25 and however you can to support us with our mission to bridging the gap between nations, cultures, languages and women.
