Media urged to address gender imbalances

Deputy president Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka has called on the media to address gender imbalances in the industry by giving women more voice in stories. This comes after the launch of the national report of the Global Media Monitoring Project for 2005. The GMMP monitored various news sources last year and it found that 74 percent of news subjects were men, while 26 percent focused on women. The report also found that 45 percent of media coverage focused on crime and violence, 26 percent on social and legal issues, 13 percent on celebrities and eight percent on arts and culture while government and politics got five percent.
