Gender-Fair Media Guidebook

The Media Gender Equality Committee (MGEC) recognizes that gender inequality in media practice is an issue that is bigger than the Committee. The "Towards a Gender-Fair Media Guidelines" that was launched in 2013 was the initial attempt to create positive impact towards gender issues in media. Four years later, the challenge of raising awareness on gender-fair practice among media practitioners remains. Development in the social media space have shown that the public consciuosness is ripe and ready to actively shape media content and increased openness of our media partners to learn to recognize and change practices that are discriminatory or non-inclusive.
This second edition is the next major step in the process of learning and changing. It is also the gateway to a more dynamic engagement between the Committee and our media partners. It sets us off to a journey towards the Philippine media that celebrates women and men, regardless of sexual orientation, gender indentity and expression.
