Launch of the national, regional and global GMMP reports

On 10 November 2009, volunteers in several countries around the world monitored their local news media for the 4th Global Media Monitoring Project. News media outlets monitored were selected on the basis of reach, density, and diversity.

 In total:

1,281 newspapers, television stations, and radio stations were monitored
76 national news websites and 8 international news websites were reviewed
17,795 news items were coded. These were reported, presented or announced by 21,813 news staff and contained 38,253 news subjects (or people seen, heard or read about in the news).

The national, regional and global reports will be launched on 29 September 2010 in several GMMP participating countries

Of special interest in the reports will be statistics on trends in women’s presence in the news since 1995, trends in reportage on different topics disaggregated by sex of news reporters and presenters, and trends in the quality of reportage from a gender perspective.

A plan of action for media professionals and civil society committed to gender-ethical news media will be presented.

Full details of the global, regional and national launches will be announced soon.

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.
