LIBELA emerged from an activist need to open media and public space for gender and feminist discourse, as well as the need for non-profit and independent journalism. LIBELA is dedicated to monitoring reality and to the questioning of democratic and social practices from a gender perspective, with an emphasis on larger visibility of social, political and cultural engagement of women and marginalized groups in the society. Our mission is deconstructing gender stereotypes and sexism that can be found in mainstream media and critically analyze reality supported by media from a feminist perspective. LIBELA’s mission is to became a platform where young journalists could be further educated. But not restricting itself only on journalists, it speaks for and to all motivated citizens who participate in its creation thus gaining knowledge in journalism, developing a gender perspective and becoming motivated to investigate gender issues and express their own opinion about the world around us.
