Solomon Islands (2)

  on January 21, 2014

The monitoring went very well for us here in the Solomons. We came across a lot of things and quite a good team too to work with doing this.

The group came out at the end of the day with ' Oh my, what a thing to learn, good that I now know how to analyse news, why are stories about women so few, a lot of stories about crime..." Those are some of the comments. The two older women in the group were amazing, keeping the group alive and recalling what it used to be like for the media decades past .And alot more including .." please include us again next time if we will still be alive.....Now we know better what to do.....''

For us, so many observations including discovering that the main stream media did almost all the same stories and a lot around rape, incest, violence....

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.
