Gender policy template for media houses

  on January 21, 2014

A proposal by the African Woman and Child Features Service

The African Woman and Child Features Service (Kenya) has proposed a gender policy template for media houses following consultations with journalists and editors.

The template was developed in the context of a project “Gender awareness and balanced reporting in the media”, an initiative funded by the World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) during the period January 2011 to January 2012. While the template was designed primarily for the local media houses, it may be adapted and localized for other contexts, retaining the relevant elements as needed.

Beijing +20: In my opinion...

The most important contribution that the Beijing Platform for Action has made to advancing gender equality in and through the media is:

Setting global standards to which governments and the media can be held accountable
Bringing coherence to and greater understanding of civil society initiatives on gender, women and media
Raising the profile of work on 'women and media' as important for addressing gender inequalities in women's lived experiences.
