This audit of women and men in Lesotho media houses is part of the Glass Ceilings: Women and Men in Southern African Media report, conducted by Gender Links (GL) in partnership with the Gender and Media Southern African (GEMSA) network in Lesotho.

The findings will be used in a global study being carried out by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), through the Gender and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC). The centre is a partnership between media-development organisations, training and higher-learning institutions for the “collection and connection” of knowledge, and “collaboration” to advance gender equality and diversity in the media across the globe. The GMDC has also facilitated partnerships around the fourth Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP), and second Southern African Gender and Media Baseline Study (GMBS) to be made in 2009/2010.

In Lesotho the study is based on research carried out in four media houses, with a total of 1 124 employees. Researchers conducted in-depth case studies of two media houses and interviewed four journalists/senior managers/editors for their perspectives on the results. A further 21 senior staff responded to perception questionnaires.
