"It is essential to promote forms of communication that not only challenge the patriarchal nature of media but strive to decentralise and democratise them: to create media that encourage dialogue and debate; media that advance women and peoples' creativity [...] Media which are responsive to people's needs". (The Bangkok Declaration, 1994) This blog seeks to encourage a critical engagement with questions about the gender dimensions of print, broadcast and digital media policy and practice. The posts highlight news, events, analyses and information from around the world in an effort to spur gender-focussed debate and action.
