ABSTRACT
We are specifically interested in how previous research investigated gender issues in the media sphere. The literature on promoting gender equality in the media, producing news stories that are gender sensitive, and avoiding gender stereotypes in the media is relevant to this discussion. As a result of these earlier research findings, this paper seeks to determine gender portrayal in the news, gender equality in journalism, and how to work through the media to put gender on the news agenda. The findings of this paper have implications for fair gender portrayal in the news and gender sensitive reporting.
