This research project aimed to track the number of women interviewed in Ghanaian media as experts. The primary objective is to measure the amount of airtime dedicated to featuring women experts in Ghanaian media and the specific topics on which they are interviewed. By doing so, the study seeks to contribute to a deeper understanding of gender representation and women’s engagement in media discourse in Ghana.
The project involved the daily monitoring of four selected radio programs during the third week of each month from February to May 2023. The selection of the radio programmes was based on their reach and popularity in Ghana. The goal was to gather data that would provide insights into the content and representation of media programmes over time.
The findings of this study have been divided into two parts: the first part presents an overview of monthly reports from February to May, utilizing frequency distribution tables; while the second part analyzes the entire dataset collected throughout the study period, offering a holistic perspective on the involvement of women experts in media programming observed throughout the study in relation to existing literature.
