4. Ng Miew Luan, senior writer, Sin Chew Daily

Moderated by Dr Mary Suma Cardosa

In view of recent sensational cases of violence against women, there is no better time examine the role of the media in this regard. As disseminators of information to the public, the media can be powerful advocates for change by highlighting incidences of violence against women with sensitivity and accuracy.

Speakers will share the challenges, outcomes and the public response towards their efforts.
