UNESCO Call for proposals: Portrayal of Men and Masculinities in the Media

UNESCO is looking for an Individual Specialist to draft a handbook on portrayals of men and masculinities in the media.

Under the supervision of the Chief of Section for Media Development and Society, the Individual Specialist shall draft a handbook to sensitize and guide media professionals regarding the portrayal of men and masculinities in the media. Concepts and norms of masculinity are inseparable from their representation in the media (whether broadcasted or printed), to which everyone of all genders are exposed while growing up.

The Individual Specialist will help media editorial desks tackle gender representations in their content, with a special focus on avoiding stereotypical or “narrow” representations of manhood and masculinities, including in relation to fatherhood, friendship and leadership, and other portrayals linked to behaviors such as violence against women, children and other men.

Closing date: 28 October 2019.
