Part of the reason for starting Follow the Women was to raise awareness of the real situation in the countries we were visiting, especially Palestine. In order to do this we recognised the need to involve the media from around the world so as they would all be able to share the experiences of all the women involved and tell their stories back in the home countries.
Thankfully a large proportion of the media in participating countries were very interested and sent representatives, journalists, film crews, authors and photographers. Some of these people cycled with the women and some captured the experience from the media trucks provided.
Here you can find the results of this activity with the coverage gained and also the press releases distributed by the Follow the Women organisation.
