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

The findings will be used in a global study being done by the International Women’s Media Federation (IWMF) through the Gender and Media Diversity Centre (GMDC). The centre is a partnership between media development organisations and training and higher-learning institutions to “collect and connect” knowledge, and collaborate on advancing 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), being undertaken in 2009/2010.

In Swaziland the study is based on a quantitative questionnaire distributed in three media houses, with a
total of 230 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 13 senior staff responded to perception questionnaires.
