The Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) began on the occasion of the 4th World Conference on Women in 1995. It is an initiative held every five years to draw a world picture of the portrayal of men and women in the media. This report, conducted for the first time in the French-Speaking Community of Belgium, is based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of Belgian newspapers and radio and television magazines in French. It notably shows that the average percentage of news stories written or presented by women journalists (35%) is slightly lower than the world average (37%).
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
