soup1Twelve Egyptian soap opera scriptwriters participated in a two-days training on Inclusive Media in Sokhna, Egypt. The course was provided by Media Diversity Institute Director, Milica Pesic, and the Egyptian scriptwriter Shahira Sallam.

The aims of the workshops were to encourage the participants to see their societies the way they are: diverse, multicultural and pluralistic rather than homogeneous monocultures, and to broaden their professional skills to better represent diversity through fair, well-researched, sympathetic and dignified coverage.

Soap operas are very popular in Egypt and across the Arab world whose content is hugely influential in shaping social perceptions, attitudes and lessons that the audience carry with them into their daily lives.  “The influence that these entertaining media content can have shaping opinions among the society is huge”, affirms MDI’s director.
