Report about the Tunisian written press: Monitoring the Coverage of Gender Issues
-A A +A

From July 1, 2012 to August 30, a group composed of five observers started to “monitor” six daily and three weekly newspapers according to the methodology developed by the organization Media Monitoring Africa (MMA). Born in 1993 under the name Media Monitoring Project, this South African NGO is specialized in the research and the monitoring upon human rights. It has contributed to many international projects, among which the most significant about the issue of gender is the Global Media Monitoring Project for which they developed their own methodology.
To carry out a relevant observation of the Tunisian media overview, the AWG-MM has had to adapt themselves to the methodology developed by MMA for the Tunisian context which is far different from the rest of Africa where women are been plagued by armed conflicts, HIV-AIDS and malnutrition.
Within that pilot project, we have only worked on newspapers because we could not afford to broaden our field of observation to audiovisual media.
The choice of the sample is based on two criteria: the media status (public or private) and the degree of penetration (print run). We have chosen six daily newspapers among the most important in Tunisia ( (Al Maghreb, Al Chourouk, Al Tounsia, Al Sarih, La Presse et Le Temps) and three weekly magazines (Al Massa, Al Dhamir et L'Audace).
