The Global Forum on Media and Gender held in Bangkok from 2 to 4 December 2013 marked the beginning of a global movement committed in promoting gender equality in and through the media. The Global Alliance for Media and Gender (GAMAG) is envisaged as a multi-stakeholder group of partners agreeing to combine efforts, and resources.

It will articulate a systematic follow-up to the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action,Women and the Media Diagnosis, and its strategic objectives:

  • Strategic objective J.1: Increase the participation and access of women to
         expression and decision-making in and through the media and new
         technologies of communication.
  • Strategic objective J.2: Promote a balanced and non-stereotyped portrayal of
         women in the media.[1]

The Framework and Action Plan for the GAMAG is accessible through this link.

An immediate first step towards fully operationalizing GAMAG is to establish an international steering committee that will lead its work. The steering committee will collaborate virtually. To avoid a hierarchical and bureaucratic structure and process, we are inviting all stakeholders to participate in an online discussion that will:

1) Agree on a simple process to nominate and appoint members of the steering committee,

2) Discuss and ratify a terms of reference for the steering committee, and

3) Nominate and appoint the committee. All members of the GAMAG are encouraged to participate by joining the discussion.

All partners of the Alliance are invited to join the discussion about GAMAG steering committee that will commence on 18 March 2014. Your contribution is crucial so join the debate now and let you voice be heard -   create an account through this link: http://www.wsis-community.org/pg/register/ or  gfmediagender@unesco.org requesting that an invitation be sent to you. You will need to accept the invitation and create username and password.
