Gender and Media Progress Study (GMPS)
 
Country Filter:
 

In 2009/2010, Gender Links, the Gender and Media Southern Africa (GEMSA) Network and the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) undertook the Gender and Media Progress Study (GMPS) covering over 30 000 news items in 14 countries.

Building on the Gender and Media Baseline Study (GMBS) of 2003; the HIV and AIDS and Gender Study of 2006 and the Francophone study of 2007 that combined these two studies, the GMPS covered four key areas. These are: general media practise; Gender and the Media; HIV and AIDS as well as Gender Violence.

The study and country findings were canvassed at workshops across the country in August/September. The final GMPS report, with comments, inputs, and recommendations on the way forward, was launched at the Gender and Media Summit in October 2010. Click here to download the country launch reports.
