The Global Alliance for Media and Gender (GAMAG) is a global movement to promote gender equality in and through media. See the GAMAG Framework and Action Plan for more information.
The GAMAG Framework and Plan of Action writes GAMAG’s objectives are as below:
- To pursue gender equality in media systems, structures and content by strengthening international, regional and national cooperation in which all stakeholders work together to drive change globally;
- To follow-up, build on and systematically monitor implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action: ‘Women and the Media Diagnosis’, and its strategic objectives; and
- To develop and sustain gender and media priorities within a broad donor, government and development agency funding framework.
UNESCO and partners call for all organizations working in the field of media, journalism, communication and gender and media to join the Global Alliance on Gender and Media. If your organization is an NGO, CBO, association, network, training/academic institution, media organization, regulatory body (such as broadcasting commission) or media self-regulatory body, public or private entity, research institution, UN agencies, national regional and international development agency and your organization is involved in gender and media related activities or gender equality issues, whether online or off line, then this call is relevant to you.
