Unit 9 - Searching for gender-sensitive media policies

The politics of media and communication seems to be gradually evolving, though very slowly and at uneven pace, towards more gender-aware approaches. In this unit we discuss the challenges of making gender mainstreaming in media and ICT a reality at different levels, from the local context of media organizations to the global environment where normative frameworks are elaborated. We clarify the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of gender-sensitive and gender-responsive media and ICT policies, and provide examples from the collection of good practices of the AGEMI project Resources Bank.
