New Zealand

Hello from New Zealand!

We are looking forward to the monitoring. The monitors are all staff and students from either Victoria University of Wellington, Massey University or Otago University.

We are monitoring the internet news for the first time in 2009. We will begin the day by taking snapshots of the news stories on the six different internet news sites we are monitoring so as to capture the news at a particular time, and avoid a situation where we keep losing one story and getting new ones as the sites are update.

We are also going to be monitoring six newspapers, seven radio broadcasts, (including one in the indigenous language, Maori), and four television news broadcasts, again including one in Maori.

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.
