About the product

Targeting media people, this handbook aims at contributing to a more gender-sensitive media, by presenting arguments and issues concerning the power of the media and the representation of women in it. It provides a checklist designed to help people working in media programming and decision-making be more aware of the gender bias in the use of language and images. It also provides recommendations on how to promote women's participation in the media, especially in decision-making processes and management.
