Gender and Caste representation in Indian newsrooms

The report aims to look into the existing gender diversity in Indian newsrooms. Our study revealed that media outlets are mostly owned by private players whose aim is to generate profit. To bring about equity and gender diversity in journalism, media outlets need to carry out certain structural changes. Media is perceived as a sacrosanct institution that has the potential for making democratic changes, however, media itself needs to go through transformation first for the larger good.

The Mobile Gender Gap Report 2022

India Discrimination Report 2022

The overall conclusion emerging from the India Discrimination Report 2022 is that while there has been a decline in discrimination within the labour market in India over a decadal timeframe, this is characterised by high gender inequity so much so that the probability of a woman being employed in decent jobs has no bearing on her endowments.

Global Gender Gap Report 2022

In 2022, the global gender gap has been closed by 68.1%. At the current rate of progress, it will take 132 years to reach full parity. This represents a slight four-year improvement compared to the 2021 estimate (136 years to parity). However, it does not compensate for the generational loss which occurred between 2020 and 2021: according to trends leading up to 2020, the gender gap was set to close within 100 years.
