Making Media Accountable
June 17, 2015
The Global Media Monitoring Project is a worldwide screening scheme that holds producers of news media accountable. Over 100 countries in every continent are analysed and subject to review, including Fiji and Solomon Islands.
The full progress report is expected to be released in September but preliminary findings have revealed that “29% of news items of news on March 25 (2015) were about women with females being the sources of only 8% of stories” following an assessment of the media landscape in Fiji.
Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women Program Partner’s FemLINKPACIFIC participated in a Pacific Learning Exchange in Suva, Fiji to discuss these findings and review the root causes of the issues evident in results.
