Share Your Skills to Support Afghanistan’s First All-Female TV Station
Zan, meaning ‘women’ in Arabic, is the first TV station in Afghanistan to be made for and run entirely by women. The channel employs 50 women to create its daily mix of news, politics and lifestyle shows. In a country still recovering from Taliban rule, Zan’s team are transforming attitudes – and the ratings are soaring.
Now, experienced UK documentary director, Deborah Lovett is calling on fellow TV professionals to support these pioneering women by taking part in one-off Skype sessions, to share their skills and provide invaluable career insights, followed by a Q&A session. This will help enrich the women’s basic training and send a strong message of solidarity from women working in TV in the UK.
Deborah is primarily looking for experienced camerawomen, current affairs reporters and presenters. If you, or someone you work with, fit the bill and would like to get involved, please contact Deborah directly by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
