Prakas on Media Code of Conduct on Reporting Violence Against Women

A joint Prakas was issued by the Ministry Women’s Affairs and the Ministry Information. The Prakas aims to protect women’s reputation and dignity when being reported on the news.
In case of violence against women, the Prakas bans the media from publishing the information that reveals their identity. Moreover, it also forbids the media on the use of offensive word in describing the victim or women.
