    Bosnia and Herzegovina is beginning the struggle for gender equality in the media

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is a nation that still maintains dominant stereotypes about women stemming from its patriarchal tradition.

    The Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) has been a mechanism for transforming the media over the past 19 years and an anchor for gender reporting in many media houses.

    Return to Bangkok: Two decades of interventions on gender and media
    Almost twenty years after the Women Empowering Communication 1994 conference,1 communicators return to Bangkok in December 2013 to consider questions about gender equality and women’s empowerment in and through the media. This year’s meeting, dubbed the Global Forum on Gender and Media and convened by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in partnership with others, is expected to result in the establishment of a Global Alliance on Media and Gender to coordinate systematic follow-up to Critical Area “J” of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action on “Women and the Media”.2 By: Sarah Macharia
