Government to ensure gender equality in DD, AIR

Fifty-Fifty ratio will be ensured between male and female anchors of Doordarshan and All India Radio (AIR) by August 15, Information and Broadcasting Minister PR Dasmunsi today said.

New Delhi, May 3 : Fifty-Fifty ratio will be ensured between male and female anchors of Doordarshan and All India Radio (AIR) by August 15, Information and Broadcasting Minister PR Dasmunsi today said.

Inaugurating a 'Workshop on Gender Equality in Indian Media' here, Dasmunsi called for taking steps towards ensuring parity for women in the field of media.

He said that freedom of the press was guaranteed in the country, but the same was not the case as regards the "freedom of journalists", most of whom were in the private sector.

The Minister felt that the condition of women journalists in India, especially those in their early career, was far from satisfactory. He advocated proper facilities at all work place considering specific needs of women who have to take care of their familial obligations along with their career.

The workshop has been organised by the Ministry of Women and Child Development on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day.
