Gender and Media Watch for Elections: an NWMI blog

NWMI's Gender, Media and Election Watch blog looks at how political parties, the media, candidates and the public in these states are responding (or not) to the need for gender equality and balance in politics. Where and who are the female candidates?  How are female voters seen and addressed?  How far do the media use a gender lens while covering elections?  How much and what kind of coverage do female candidates receive?  How far are female voters' perceptions and opinions taken into account in media reports?
