Project ‘Women in Media’ heralded by the Agency for Electronic Media started through activities of working group ‘Women and Gender’ by MNRA, of which AEM is the member. The aim of the project is to build awareness on the position of women in Croatian society, achieve better sensibilisation of both media and the general public on the representation of women in media as well to provide better visibility of women in media and contribute to diminishing of the stereotypes. To achieve this a number of activities have been done including research activities, publications, seminars and conferences, and the national campaign on the position of women in media, etc.

As a part of this project AEM published ‘The Recommendations on better news coverage of women’s sport in electronic media’, ‘The Media Codex-Recommendations on News Coverage on femicide and violence against women’ and other relevant research publications. Important part of the project is the web portal ‘Žene i mediji’ (Women and Media) that was established in 2019, which publishes news on the events and research as well as different inputs from the partner organizations.
