It is a sad fact that Nepal’s media has a long way to go in terms of inclusivity and gender sensitivity. We do not have many female editors and members of the LGBTQI+ communities have not found a space in our newsrooms. Unsurprisingly, this reflects on the type of content they present. Nepali media have been accused of covering issues of sexual assault and harassment insensitively and alienating and disempowering gender and sexual minorities. We at Media Action Nepal strive to change this. Women represent half the population – a fact that should be reflected proportionally in the newsrooms and in media leadership positions. We will urge the media to move beyond the gender binary and be inclusive to all.
