This report from the International Women’s Media Foundation, published in 2009, is still relevant. It examines how African media cover agricultural issues and analyzes whose voices are heard. Its aim is to improve media coverage of the role of African women in agriculture. The study finds that in the three countries addressed in the study, agricultural journalism is both urban and male-focused, while agriculture is often dominated by women in rural areas.
