The 2010 Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) provides a one day snapshot of gender portrayal and the representation of women and men in newspaper, television and radio news simultaneously in 108 countries, including 27 African countries. The findings constitute a body of evidence on the current extent of gender sensitivity and gender equity in mainstream news around the world. In combination with data collected every five years since 2005, the GMMP 2010 results allow for comparisons between regions as well as globally, across GMMP research years. This article provides an overview of findings from the monitoring in Africa in comparison with global averages. Comparisons with the findings five years ago reveal the extent of change and lack of change. News media in Africa are behind the global average in many dimensions of gender sensitivity, despite evidence of some change in the last five years.
