About GAB Media center

Gender and Body Rights Media Center (GAB Media Center) is a project implemented by The Arab Foundation of Freedoms and Equality (AFE) that brings together media experts and advocates for gender and body rights to participate in media related activities in Lebanon and the MENA region.

GAB Media Center’s mission is to build the capacities of human rights activists from one side and media experts from the other to collaborate on making the voice of communities discriminated for gender based reasons heard. GAB also aims at creating a story bank accessible to journalists and media actors and monitoring the Lebanese media to raise awareness about harmful and discriminative content.

GAB Media Center’s vision is to create a strong alliance between the Lebanese media with all its components and gender and body rights advocates and organizations to give a fair voice to discriminated communities who can be victims of different types of gender based violence.
