Gender-Fair Media Guidebook Launched to Promote Gender Balance in Mass Media

Hello Sweeties,

The Media and Gender Equality Committee (MGEC) recently launched a new guidebook that seeks to eliminate gender stereotyping and promotes gender balance in the participation and representation of women and men across various forms of media and communication.
