Girls are slowly becoming a growing priority for the international development community and they are investing in girls’ empowerment. The interplay between gender and media has been investigated with regard to girls in the Global North, but the role the media plays in girls’ lives in the South needs more study. This policy briefing seeks to fill this gap. It explores potential ways the media can positively shape girls’ prospects and suggests ways media projects can fulfil their development potential for girls.
