Rate My Media: Tech Action for More Diversity in the Media PDF Print

Published: 16 December 2016

Region: Worldwide

Rate My MediaWhether it is the latest Star Wars film or your favourite comic book, people can now rate the media they consume every day on the basis of racial equity and inclusion. Rate My Media is the first crowd-sourced website fostering action for a diverse media through more informed consumers and more accountable media.

The starting point of the website is that media should accurately represent the society we live in, but a quick zapping on TV is enough to understand that we don’t see all groups accurately portrayed on screen. As the UCLA Diversity Report highlights, from Hollywood to TV shows, minorities are still underrepresented in the media.

Tunisia_Training_Nov_2016“Sometimes I think about suicide but then when I hear my child cry, I ask God for forgiveness that I even thought about it,” says the mother of five who admits that she sometimes is unable to feed her children.  She told her story to the Dune Voices journalist Nadia Retibi.

Nadia is one of dozens of young journalists and citizen journalists reporting for Dune Voices, a multimedia platform set up by the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) in 2014. The Dune Voices specialise in covering topics of marginalised groups and minorities in the Sahara region of six countries - Mali, Mauritania, Algeria, Morocco, Libya and Tunisia.

Black History Month in the UK Media PDF Print

Published: 28 November 2016

Country: UK

BHM_LambethWhat month is the Black History Month (BHM)? If you are an average news consumer in the UK who does not regularly reads the Guardian from page to page, then the answer does not come easily. In many British media outlets there was not enough content dedicated to BHM and the issues of the black community.

One of the positive examples is The Guardian. This newspaper created a special section on their website for the Black History Month, while some other British media did not give the celebration of the black heritage in the UK enough prominence. Some programmes at the BBC were even criticised for racism and stereotyping.
