Gender equality in a time of gendered disinformation
The media have enabled anti-gender narratives to become widespread in the media space, thus contributing to the introduction and dissemination of gendered disinformation during the reporting on the events related to the Draft Law on Gender Equality and the amendments to the Law on Civil Registry.
This is shown by the analysis “Gender equality in a time of gendered disinformation”, prepared by the Institute of Communication Studies (ICS), covering the period from May to July of this year. The analysis included news reports on the events related to the Pride Parade (Skopje Pride 2023) and the protest organized by the Macedonian Orthodox Church (MOC) and other conservative and religious organizations, which took place in June. More than 1,000 online reports and 7,000 comments to the news reports posted on Facebook were analysed.
