Giving children a voice in the media

VIDEO: 2016 Through the Eyes of Children

 

 

Media Monitoring Africa's latest research suggests that children continue to get a raw deal in the media. In 2016, not only were their issues underrepresented in mainstream news but their voices were only heard in a mere one percent of news content. 

In this brief video, child journalists participating in MMA's Children's News Agency talk about the news and offer meaningful insight into why media and other duty-bearers need to start listening to children.
