Global Media Monitoring Project 2015 takes place

Thousands of stories in hundreds of newspapers and news broadcasts have been monitored by a team of volunteers around the world. The objective is to investigate and advocate whether there is a fair and balanced portrayal of women and men in the media.

This exercise on gender equality in the news media was done on March 25 in more than 130 countries around the world. The Global Media Monitoring Project is the largest research and advocacy initiative in the world on gender equality in news and journalism. It is organized by the World Association for Christian Communication (WACC) in cooperation with regional and national coordinators.

Reports from various countries and a final consolidated report will be produced in time for the UN Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda which takes place in New York, 25-27 September 2015.
