India (1)

  on January 21, 2014

Greetings from India, where some 62 individuals were interested enough in the GMMP 2009-2010 to join the gmmpindia yahoogroup set up a few months ago to facilitate communication related to the project across this rather large country!

Volunteers located in different parts of the country will be monitoring 26 newspapers in 10 languages, 13 TV channels in 6 languages, and 6 radio stations in 5 languages.  Of course this means that we'll probably have more data than required for the global report.  But we're hoping to put together a national report, which I think will be the first of its kind here and could serve a variety of useful purposes within the country. The inclusion of media based outside the big cities would certainly make such a report especially unique and rich. 

All the best to all of us!

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.
