Coverage of women, across and within media organisations, is the focus of the Global Media Monitoring Project, one of the largest studies in the world that looks at the intersection between gender and the media.
Following International Women’s Day recently, BFM’s Lyn Mak speaks to Gayathry Venkiteswaran, national co-cooordinator of the GMMP, about how women are portrayed across different segments of the news, the dearth of women in top editorial posts and the links between the two.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week. So please consider making a donation to Persatuan Aliran Kesedaran Negara, CIMB Bank account number 8004240948.
