Presentation and discussion of the results of the sixth and largest study on the portrayal and representation of women in the world’s news media.
The sixth GMMP report includes data from 116 country teams and covers 30,172 stories published in newspapers, broadcast on radio and television, and disseminated on news websites and via news media tweets. It presents a gender analysis on what, if any, has changed in the presence, representation and voice of the subjects and sources in the news since the first GMMP was conducted in 1995.
The report includes data and analysis on gender representation in Covid-related news stories, and for the first time, the roles of Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, racialized groups, and the elderly in the news.
This launch is co-organized by WACC and Free Press Unlimited.
