There has been a marginal improvement in the proportion of women sources in the news in the region from 17% in the 2003 Gender and Media Baseline Study (GMBS) to 19% in the 2010 Gender and Media Progress Study (GMPS).

This is lower than the 24% figure for women sources in the 2010 Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP), but the same as the figure for the rest of Africa in the global “spot monitoring” study that involved one day of monitoring in November 2009 at the same time as the regional study took place.

The GMPS media monitoring took place in 14 countries in the SADC region (with the exception of Angola where the researcher failed to deliver on time) from 19 October to the 16 November 2009 covering 157 media houses and 33 431 news items.
