Gender equality and media regulation: national study launch

Gender equality is a public interest issue, upheld in international norms and most national Constitutions as a fundamental human right, with laws prohibiting discrimination. How is gender equality treated in national media regulation and in media industry self-regulation? In what ways do media organizational policies and editorial guidelines seek to uphold gender equality principles, if at all? What levers of change towards gender equality in media does the evidence suggest?

The clip below is from the launch of country reports of in-depth investigation in Bangladesh, Rwanda, Somalia, Sweden and Zimbabwe.
