Global Initiative for Gender Equality in Media

From Unesco:

Launched annually on the occasion of International Women’s Day (8 March), Women Make the News is a global initiative aimed at promoting gender equality in the media.
The theme chosen for this year’s campaign - “Gender Equality Policies in Media Organizations” – will seek to highlight best practices in this area and remind media managers and journalists’ unions of the importance of developing policies that prevent all forms of discrimination based on gender.

As a part of the Women Make the News 2009 commemoration, UNESCO has teamed up with the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) to produce a handbook entitled “Getting the Balance Right”, which provides a guide on how to address some of the main problems faced by women working in the media.
