National Watch on Images of Women in the Media

Organization Type: 
NGO - Non Government Organization

In Canada, the National Watch on Images of Women in the Media (MediaWatch) Inc is a bilingual (French and English) media-monitoring organization. It became an autonomous organization in 1983, originating as a sub-committee of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women. National Committee members are women who are experts in their fields. MediaWatch relies on their expertise and contacts to ensure that it can successfully reach its goals.
Its main objective is to have a media environment in which women are realistically portrayed and fairly represented in all their physical, economic, racial and cultural diversity. It does this by educating media industries, government, and the public. It conducts research and encourages community action.
In a recent research project in partnership with the University of Toronto it investigated the response of "tweens" (11 - 14 year old girls) regarding the effect of media on body image and self-esteem. The results were distributed to appropriate groups/individuals/agencies to be used to educate the general public, media organizations, and industry regulators.
Over the years, MediaWatch has influenced public policy, educated and mobilized consumers to advocate for change and contributed substantive research to the field. Through research analysis and public education, MediaWatch works with and trains health professionals, educators, researchers, students, community members, and media and industry personnel on how certain media portrayals of women and girls affect individuals' body image and self-esteem of individuals.

IMPACS to cease operations
 

Mar 23 2007

From the Institute for Media Policy and Civil Society (IMPACS)
 
"The Board of Directors of IMPACS - Institute for Media Policy and Civil Society - regrets to announce that IMPACS has ceased operations and made a voluntary assignment into bankruptcy effective March 21, 2007. C. Topley & Company Ltd. has been appointed as trustee in bankruptcy and will be administering the affairs of IMPACS for the benefit of its creditors. A meeting of creditors will be held on Wednesday, April 11, 2007 at 11 a.m. at the offices of C. Topley & Company Ltd. (Suite 200 - 260 West Esplanade, North Vancouver, BC, V7M 3G7).
 
"The experience of IMPACS is, regrettably, not an isolated instance. There are numerous non-governmental organizations and charities in Canada's community non-profit sector that are facing many of the same financial stresses. Chief among them is the lack of what is often called 'core-funding,' i.e. revenue sources from operations or grants from governments or foundations that can sustain what is even the modest central management function at the heart of any organization.
 
"In addition to the matter of inadequate core funding, another major challenge has been the ripple effect of cut-backs to federal grants and contributions announced last summer. This has had an adverse effect on the ability of numerous organizations in the non-profit sector to afford the services of the IMPACS Communications Centre, a social-enterprise model, moderate-cost provider of high quality communications services to non-profit and public-sector organizations."
