GMMP 2020 Preliminary Results

25 Years after the Fourth UN World Conference on Women (Beijing), the news media remain far from being inclusive spaces for women and historically marginalized groups, preliminary results of the 2020 Global Media Monitoring Project show.

25 years after the 4th UN World Conference on Women in Beijing, women and historically marginalized groups remain largely invisible in the world’s news media, preliminary results of the 2020 Global Media Monitoring Project show. See results:

The past five years have seen small incremental changes towards gender parity in subjects and sources particularly in broadcast news. Still, the pace of change remains glacial. See results:

There has been significant progress towards gender balance in news reporting; women’s role as television news reporters is more prominent now than ever, with 48% of televised news being reported by women, preliminary results of the 2020 Global Media Monitoring Project show.  Read more:

In European televised news, people age 80 and over are less than 1% of subjects and sources and, of these, just under 28% are women.

In a year where #COVID19 dominated the world’s news, #GMMP2020 preliminary results show that on the Internet, women are even less visible in stories related to the pandemic than in non-pandemic news, especially in Latin America and Asia.

Covid-19 presented an opportunity to investigate the gender dimensions of news during a global pandemic. One out of 4 stories is related to the pandemic, for instance, news about rising social and economic inequalities due to the novel coronavirus. 

UN Women, the lead United Nations entity on gender equality, has supported GMMP thrice consecutively since 2010. “The news industry must adopt codes of conduct that define and actively redress gender discrimination and stereotyping, starting with an increase in women’s leadership within the media industry,” says UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.

On the Internet, women are less visible in stories related to Covid-19 than in non-Covid news especially in Latin America and Asia. Only in the #Caribbean does web-published news appear to be performing better in Covid-related stories on this indicator.
