Following the highly successful challenge issued to the South African media last year for the coverage of National Women’s Day, the Media Monitoring Project (MMP) has decided to re-issue the challenge to media this year. The MMP’s challenge is for the media to mainstream women on National Women’s Day. Instead of media merely concentrating on so called “women’s issues” and only on the celebrations that are set to take place on the 9th of August, the MMP challenges the media to fill their papers, radio broadcasts, television schedules and news programmes with women.
