  • Gender balance of sources: For the media to produce coverage that is complete and diverse, it is critical that the news reflects the world as seen through the eyes of women as well as men and other genders.
  • Agents of change: Journalists can help to change attitudes by portraying women as they really are rather than re-enforcing gender-based stereotypes.
  • Gender balance is good journalism: Professionalism journalism demands that all voices and perspectives are covered.
  • Language is value ridden: Language is key, do not use male descriptors to describe all people. Describe the differential impact on all the relevant groups.
  • Data disaggregation: Breakdown data so that there is a perspective on how the issue affects everyone not just one homogenous group.
  • Fairness: Ensure that all views are included and treated with equal weight. Challenge stereotypes: Focus on women’s views not their appearance or their perceived gender roles such as being wives and mothers.
  • Accountability: Hold stakeholders accountable for their actions or lack of action.
  • Research: Thoroughly research your subject, ensure accuracy and clarity. Sift out what is fact and opinion.

    Apply by 12th June.
