This audit of women and men in Zambia media houses is part of the Glass Ceilings: Women and Men in Southern African Media conducted by Gender Links (GL).
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 and training and higher-learning institutions to “collect and connect” knowledge, and collaborate 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), being undertaken in 2009/2010.
In Zambia the study is based on research carried out in nine media houses, with a total of 416 employees. Researchers conducted in-depth case studies of two media houses, and interviewed six journalists/senior managers/editors for their perspectives on the results. A further 33 senior staff responded to perception questionnaires.
