Our latest benchmark looks at how countries in the Americas regulate the representation of women and gender discrimination in television programmes and advertising.
Of the seven countries surveyed, such rules are found in:
- Argentina and Canada covering both television programmes and advertising; and
- Chile and Mexico covering television programmes but not advertising.
No specific rules on the representation of women or gender discrimination in the media exist in Brazil, Colombia and the US.
Further, the research shows that laws to promote the appointment of women to senior management positions in private companies and public institutions, including in the media sector, exist in only two of the seven countries – Mexico and Colombia.
