The Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) is the world’s longest running and most extensive research on gender in the news media. It began in 1995 with volunteers in 71 countries around the world each monitoring the presence of women in their national radio, television and print news. In 2015, the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) took part in the Caribbean Regional GMMP monitoring process.

This report presents the findings of a review, on Wednesday 11th January 2017, of the news media to provide a snap shot of what is actually being distributed and some of the implicit and explicit nuances of the information provided. The report summarizes the presence of women in relation to men, gender bias and stereotyping in their national online and print news media. The report draws on Barbados Today, Loop News: Barbados, The Nation News and The Barbados Advocate.
