Media Club Fight against Women’s Logic Continues

Media Club will appeal against the decision made by Imedi TV self-regulation board in the board of appeals of the broadcaster.

17 April, the self-regulation board, consisting of the broadcaster high management, did not satisfy the Media Club complaint in which the Media Club claimed Women’s Logic Show to be discriminatory to women and requested closing of the show, or change of its content.

“We have not heard any argument why the show is not discriminatory.  The approach that the show is aired in the same format in several other countries is not an argument considering our cultural background,” lawyer of the Georgian Young Lawyers Association Natia Kapanadze says.

According to her Imedi TV self-regulation board clarified that format of the show cannot be changed as there is a coinciding license and that the show is aired inRussiaandHollandand has not resulted in such a protest from local society.

Media Club complaint will be discussed by a nine-member commission, consisting of the broadcaster representatives and public figures.

Kapanadze says that as long as the show does not violate a law, but ethical norms the Media Club can only complain to the self-regulation board of the broadcaster itself and then complain in the board of appeals of the same board.

It is not yet known what measures will be taken if the board of appeals rejects the Media Club request too.

The board of appeals must discuss the complaint within 30 days.
