Global Media Monitoring Project Award Nomination

Editorial, Media and Gender Monitor. Issue No: 14, February 2004

The Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) will be 10 years old in 2005 and while numerous gender and communication activists, policy makers and academics have over the years recognized the importance of GMMP as a tool for change, to date there has been no formal recognition of the project. All that changed at the end of last year when the nominations committee of the Feminist Scholarship Division of the International Communication Association (ICA) selected GMMP as their nomination for the ICA award of Most Important Applied/ Public Policy Research Programme. Karen Ross (University of Coventry) in the UK, was then responsible for putting the nomination package together on behalf of FSD.

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.
