Women should create network among themselves or within their officers.They should know that in media they should look for something that made people happy such as positive stories from differences societies.

Meanwhile one of the representatives said that there were so many things women did in the media.Women participated in the concept of peace building, and the voices of women should come up so that they could notjust stay at home.They should share the percent that they were given, they needed to go back to the grassroots.
