President of the National Council for Women (NCW), Maya Morsi, demands from the drama producers to focus on presenting respectful values and protection for women in their dramatic productions.
She explained that one single scene of drama could destroy the efforts of the state and the strategies that are being put in place to combat violence against women, pointing out that violence against women is not an authentic Egyptian value.
Her remarks came during the press conference organised by the NCW on Tuesday, to present the results of the report on the media’s treatment of the image and issues of women in reference to the media code established by the NCW’s media committee and approved by the Supreme Council for Media Regulation.
In that context, Morsi highlighted during her speech the importance of presenting the image of women in dramatic productions in a decent manner and addressing women’s issues through dramas in a positive way.
She stated that this year, the positive image of women was appeared more than the negative images, pointing out that there is a commitment to the ethical code of the media established by the NCW’s media committee and approved by the Supreme Council for Media Regulation.
Morsi aspires to increase women’s lead characters and, more importantly, to see drama producers convey the message that Egyptian girls and women are strong, successful, and leaders, assuring that their empowerment in society is supported by showing successful female role models.
