Even though women constitute more than a half of the world's population, only 10% of news stories worldwide have women as a central focus. Women are featured as spokespeople only in 14%, and as experts only in 17% of news stories. The figures come from Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) - the most extensive global research into gender in news media ever undertaken - maps the representation of women and men in news media worldwide. The Media Diversity Institute has been one of the partners in promotion of the GMMP. The whole project is coordinated by the World Association for Christian Communication. (WACC)
