By Wayan Vota on November 1, 2021

data journalism fellowship

The Global Media Monitoring Project is the largest and longest longitudinal study on the gender gap in the world’s media. Every five years since 1995, GMMP research has taken the pulse of selected indicators of gender in the news media, studying women’s presence in relation to men, gender bias and stereotyping in news media content.

The fifth Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) 2020 report highlights the continued invisibility of women’s voices in the media and of women journalists as influencers or decision-makers. This gender gap in media and journalism is especially acute in African countries.

WanaData Fellowships for African Journalists
