Ending 2013 on a high note, CNN-IBN and IBN7 have bagged the prestigious Laadli Media Awards for Gender Sensitivity 2013. The Laadli Media Awards for Gender Sensitivity, by Population First, acknowledges media’s efforts in promoting public awareness and understanding gender issues through gender-just perspectives, portrayals and analysis, policies, social trends, and behaviours.

CNN-IBN won the award in the Best Reporting category. The ‘Trauma of the Two-Finger Test’, which highlights the agony of a rape victim while having to undergo this archaic test to determine sexual assult, is a part of the Citizen Journalist - Agenda For Change campaign. CNN-IBN’s Senior Correspondent Akansha Pradeep received the award at a grand function held at Chinmaya Mission Auditorium in New Delhi on December 20.

Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, CNN-IBN, IBN7 & IBN Lokmat, said, “This award is another recognition of our efforts to ensure that a woman’s privacy and dignity cannot be violated. Unscientific and invasive practises such as TFT need to be discarded since these only prolong the trauma of the rape victim. The Laadli award further strengthens our resolve to continue to drive the agenda of change.”

On the other hand, IBN7 has bagged two awards one in the Best Hindi Feature and the other in the Best Investigative News Feature category for Gender Sensitivity 2013.

IBN7’s Nishat Shamsi from Mumbai Bureau received the award in the Best Investigative News Feature category for his documentary ‘Yaha Lagti Hai Dulhan Ki Mandi’ which is an investigative report on the heinous practice of selling women like commodities in the Vedhu Samaj of Nanded District of Maharashtra, while Neetu Rana from Delhi received the award in the Best Feature (Hindi) category for documentary ‘Surrogate Maa’ which showcases surrogate mothers from Anand, a small town in Gujarat who come forward to talk about the pain of renting out their wombs.

Ashutosh, Managing Editor, IBN7, said, “IBN7 has always been upfront in highlighting the social issues. The award has strengthened our belief and commitment towards fair journalism and motivated us to continue with highlighting such crucial issues.”
