Gender Bias in the Media

In general, media is capable of communicating to large groups of people, eg TV, film, radio, newspaper, websites, magazines, DVD's, games and CD's. Also, it has the role to discuss topics that affects women's life such as violence, abuse, or electronic blackmail or cyber bullying.

To clarify, in my country Lebanon, the media plays a big role, especially in the press. The biggest example is that there is a female journalist in Lebanon who is subjected to discrimination and bullying because of the color of her skin. Also, whenever she spoke about something or about a specific issue, most people attacked and objected to her, because they do not look at women. As an intelligent and logical person, they instead look at her appearance and beauty.

Because the media is not fair all the time you may not see what you like or look like in a certain magazine or newspaper or on TV or radio. For example, if we go to the library or any place that contains magazines or books, we see that books related to women are within the scope of cooking, raising children, make-up and dress. We do not see other possibilities that could embody the desire of any woman who has an ability or talent, so there is no justice in embodying women's desires. As for the exploitation of women in advertisements, they use them as a commodity to attract customers by placing pictures of a woman with an attractive body.

There is no doubt that this problem has many solutions. First, media companies should employ an equal number of men and women to help spot and stop bias and stereotypes in their news stories and content. Second, if people see an example of bias or stereotypes in the media, they should always explain to others why it is wrong. To add, women and men should not be treated as separate groups by the media. For example, there should be no magazines or television shows aimed at men or women. Also, we can carry out campaigns that enhance the role of women and prevent discrimination. In addition to using the media positively by giving the importance of Father's Day equal to the importance we give to Mother's Day. Even the name "snowman" is stereotypical, "Snowwoman" must be used too.

Will these solutions actually be implemented one day?

    In fact, the Arab media is working to turn the scales against women in men (society), as in all series women are subjected to violence and persecution, or if they are identified as a working woman, they will be seen as a woman who falls short in their work. In fact, this is very angry.
    Second: Advertisements where when a woman is appointed to represent a particular brand (cosmetics, for example), they try to make the woman lose a factor to attract customers, otherwise she is attacked heavily because of an advertisement.
    Third: When speaking with any woman in a political force, she is attacked and said that these matters are for men. Women do not have to enter into these discussions and solve problems, and they do not know that women's solution will be more logical than them.
    I hope better work is done on the image of women in the media.

    Yes, this problem is not only in Lebanon, but is also present in many countries of the world, including Belgium, which a topic was also raised about a few days ago, and we all, without exception, women, children and men work hard to communicate our ideas to the world that women accomplish twice as much as men only if they allow them to do so And that a woman does not exist to raise children and work at home, because it is one of her legal rights and duty that a woman has to fulfill all her accomplishments, dreams and ambitions, and that a woman is not a commodity for sale. Do not judge a book by its title, and there is another problem that you raised, which is racism.
    Nothing bothers us, neither race, nor religion, nor language, nor color, nor origin.

    I have a question, why is it that we are all talking about gender bias in the media but not gender bias in sports.
    The sports field never advertises really any female sporting agenda, if there is inequality in the media then of course there is sporting bias, female sports are rarely almost never televised, maybe sometimes I want to watch my female football team play but its like its never on air, I feel this should be another issue to be tackled right after the gender bias in the media.

    I for one think that involving more women in the media houses might not change a thing depending on the positions of their mind. Women are also bias to women let us not forget and therefore they might not change a thing when they are employed.

      This is not true, my dear. I believe that if women are employed in the media, this may change if something we can interact with them and publish everything you say in the plural form, so these clips will be circulated

    The media has many fields and useful and harmful aspects. For example, some media publish facts and information, and some publish false rumors and facts. They incite to hatred of women more than men and publish hacked pictures or videos, and therefore there is a percentage of Internet surfers who believe everything they see, and the phenomenon of discrimination between males and females increases.

    You have a point, but first of all its not actually plausible for media companies to employ the exact number of men and women, considering the fact that people are employed based on their qualifications and what they can bring into the company, which differ in size from individual to individual and those who can contribute more will be employed in favor of the others. Secondly, how can a person explain to another that something is wrong without first realizing the fact him or herself? I'm talking about a situation where two or more people see something that encourages gender bias on the media but cannot identify it as something wrong so therefore cannot explain is to the other party as something that should not be encouraged. I think a possible solution lies in educating the masses on the dangers of gender bias using the media, according to the Global WebIndex about 57.6% of the world use the media in one way or the other, now if the media were to devote time to passing information about the disadvantages of gender bias that would be enough to sensitize the people( notice I used the word devote) thereby helping a greater number of people to identify gender bias propagated by the media as something to be discouraged.

    I agree with you but in my understanding of the Lebanese I got to understand their way of leaving was that men are meant to do all the work while females are meant to be doing household chores but in the real sense of it anything is for anyone but I think in a few years to come hopefully, our generation could change that ideology. But as the case maybe as for the Lebanese reporter I think she could stand up for herself and many other women would join her in the fight for equality.

    03 Mar 2022

    I agree with almost everything that glorious shark mentioned and I would like to point out a few of my thought on the topic of the fight against gender inequality. The current world is tilted in favor of males for the most part and all efforts are being made to bring about a balance between males and females. One question that is left unanswered however is how fast should this change occur. I believe that real change is slow, hard and imperceptible. If the transition from a one sided world to a balanced world in term of gender is too fast, it might spark a very unexpected and negative response from the thousands of people with bias ideologies. The attainment of gender equality around the world should also give time for people who are biases against women to quickly adapt to the new order instead of cornering both the and their ideologies and receiving negative backlash .

    In fact, I agree and disagree with you at the same time.
    I agree with you when you said that women's books are in well-known fields.
    But I do not agree with you when you said that men and women are unequal in employment opportunities, and that is because all joint businesses ، we see women working in all fields, but the majority remains for the man, and this is what is called the productive role and it is for men.
    As for the woman, she also has a role, as she performs pregnancy and childbirth, and this called is referred to as the reproductive role. Also, as the woman participates in the reproductive role, the man participates in the reproductive role, as he contributes to raising children, and thus the sexes become equal.
    In summary, each of us has a role and a profession that he performs, and if something goes wrong with it, the balance of society will be disrupted.

    I think that men and women should not be two different targets in the media. They should be treated as one audience; women must not be seen as cooks or housewives. They have interest in sports, economics, culture, history and every area that men have interest in.

    I think your ideas are good glorious_shark. I agree with you. I also have a few ideas on how to solve the problem of gender inequality in the media and think that if they are implemented, they will go a long way in solving gender inequality in the media.

    1. Publishing contents should be balanced between male and female contents not just on women issues but also on a general note. Such a balance in publication will lead to an eventual success because if you upgrade a woman you upgrade the society.

    2. Balance in the contents of media organizations alone will not do. The management of the media organisation too will have to be fully on board and committed before embarking on such a process. To be role models to team members, the management will also have to work hard.

    3. Speaking of management, a media organization should have an equal number of male and female people occupying positions (even the senior ones) because no matter how much a media company publishes about women, the presence of physical representation must reflect a true balance in an organization and also to show to the public that the media also practice what they preach. The males can't be occupying all the senior positions, leaving the females to scurry for the lower positions.

    4. There should also be "equal pay". Since the media has been noted for its huge gap in the equality of payment between males and females, the gap must be bridged by paying women the same as men.

    5. Mentoring and development programs are important for equipping women with the confidence and skills they need to step up their game career-wise and this will help media companies to move up the ladder in ensuring gender equality.

The media, which is given attention when issuing policies, so the role of technological development and new means of communication can be recognized as a main tool for supporting and empowering women in society. The role of technological development and new communications focuses on providing wide opportunities for the media sector to use advanced means and new tools in exchanging information and communicating with women's organizations in a large way. On the other hand, new technologies have enabled many women and women’s organizations to increase their ability to access knowledge and information and exchange it with others, and to spread their ideas widely and quickly, thus raising their status and status.

    I am with you with some of your opinion and some of it I do not agree with, because the Arab media is working to prevent women from their freedom in front of the media and to deal with it, and it is also working to not deliver the voice of women to the whole world to hear it and respond to the call for relief.
    For example, there is a media personality in my country, Palestine, whose name is (Mona Al-Kurd), and she became famous because of our Palestinian cause because she was defending it. Sheikh Jarrah through the media, and after a short period of publishing all the crimes and documenting everything that is happening here, her voice has reached and the world has risen to fight and stand with us.
    In this section, everything was fine, and then the situation calmed down a little, and after a while the fire returned and caught fire in Sheikh Jarrah, Mona returned to publish the events that occur in Sheikh Jarrah through all media, but unfortunately the media were not cooperating with her, so they eliminated everything related to the issue and worked not to publish it anywhere in the world, but we are trying to deliver our voice and we will continue to try to deliver our voice to answer for our help.

    Media has became an inherent part in our lives. Everyday, we're indeed to surf TV channels aiming to know the world's news. Bias in media is the bias of journalists and news producers within the mass of media. Unfortunately, we face media bias in Lebanon due to the deep rooted political divide in counts. Yet, politicians own most of the media outlets and the number of people that have arrested due to their free talks on media had spiked.
    Dima sadek, Luna Safwan and Mhassen Moussel had received aggressive hate campaigns targeting them.
    Dima sadek has been receiving lots of intermittent threats, since the anti_governmental protests in Lebanon, and she showed the screenshots on social media.
    Mhassen Moussel has been named and treated as Israeli for posting a tweet critical of Hezbollah (party in Lebanon).
    But, Diana Moukalled, Alia Ibrahim and Hazem Al Amine are 3 Lebanese journalists that got frustrated of the bias in media in Lebanon, especially upon Dur Arab upsprings, and drew their own outline of independent and free journalism.

    Sexism is prevalent in all societies, but every society can differ in the forms of this bias. Each society has its opinion on this bias It is possible for the Arab society to consider that women work to spend on the family a prejudice, while in other societies they do not consider it prejudice and on and in other societies it is only The woman must give birth, and the man must do every thing in terms of expenses and upbringing.

Second, if people see an example of bias or stereotypes in the media, they should always explain to others why it is wrong. To add, women and men should not be treated as separate groups by the media"

    Same thing is happening Ghana as well "To clarify, in my country Lebanon, the media plays a big role, especially in the press. The biggest example is that there is a female journalist in Lebanon who is subjected to discrimination and bullying because of the color of her skin. Also, whenever she spoke about something or about a specific issue, most people attacked and objected to her, because they do not look at women. As an intelligent and logical person, they instead look at her appearance and beauty."

    I agree with your idea and I strongly believe that we are the solution, if we see things that are bias let's talk about it and solve it right there.

    Fight back in innovative ways to stop media bias: Aside from finding ways to stop media bias we need we must think of new, creative, and efficient ways to combat republican misinformation in the media. we need to come up with our ideas and try them out  — and share them with other activists.

    Do you believe most of what you read and hear from news outlets? Have you noticed how closed-minded some are to differing points of view? How do you think this influences our culture and young people in particular? Please share your comments with me; I will love to hear your experiences and point of view!
