The view of the world presented by the news media in 2010 is largely a male one according to an international research report.

The research conducted in 108 countries, shows that 76% of the voices heard or read are those of men, and women remain significantly under represented.

Another alarming aspect of the finding is that rather than challenging the gender stereotypes, nearly half of the news stories reinforce them.

The Global Media Monitoring Project commissioned by the London based World Association for Christian Communication, began its work in 1995 and the aim of the project is to promote media diversity and communication between different faith groups.
