The goal of this project is to monitor gender in Internet news. Much research has been done on gender representations in traditional media platforms, but little has been found yet regarding how that translates to the web. In fact, 2010 was the first year Internet news was included in the Global Media Monitoring Project’s study as a pilot.
To achieve this aim, The Gender Report, founded in January 2011, has undertaken a number of studies related to the representation of women and gender in online news. In addition, this site also features posts about trends observed over time, resources on the subjects of gender and journalism, examinations of coverage of gender and women in the news, and links to other related sources online.
