Election Coverage from a Gender Perspective. A Media Monitoring Manual

28.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

This methodological tool enables analysis of the monitoring of the media coverage during the electoral campaigns. The manual, based on the experiences of six Latin American institutions, offers a useful tool to promote equitable media coverage in other electoral contexts. Its objective is to assess the media coverage of the electoral campaigns in Latin America from a gender perspective enabling identification of inequality in the approach to men and women candidates. The manual also examines the importance given to gender equality issues in questions debated during the campaigns.
