30 Jun 2014 Monitoring the presence of women as political actors in the media
In 2014 a Law of Quotas will enter into effect in Uruguay which establishes a 30 per cent minimum level for women in Parliament. In Latin America Uruguay currently ranks close to the bottom in the number of women politicians. This project used the results of media monitoring to work with journalists to promote reflection and analysis about the way news is produced and made public from a gender perspective. It also worked with women politicians to strengthen their strategies for participating in a being visible in the public arena. The project included reflection and opinions about the key role that communicators can play in helping to advance gender equality by means of gender-sensitive reporting.
