Solidarity message to Se Non Ora Quando

  on January 21, 2014

The World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) on behalf of the Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) network has expressed solidarity with Se Non Ora Quando (SNOQ) (if not now, when?), a feminist movement formed in Italy this year to reclaim dignity and respect for women.

Among other goals, SNOQ mobilizes around the issue of  the image and representation of women in the mass media. SNOQ’s success in mobilizing women across Italy has inspired the emergence of similar movements in other countries.

In a letter to the movement, WACC said SNOQ’s struggles on media representation of women resonate with the GMMP's vision for “gender-just media practice that upholds women’s dignity, for media that is less sexist and more fair, less gender-biased and more balanced.” 

The most recent GMMP research published in 2010 found that under-representation of women was even more acute in Italian news media, in contrast to the European regional and the global averages.

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.
