Middle Eastern Women in the Media: A Battle Against Stereotypes

Reuters Institute Fellow's Paper

Amel al-Ariqi, managing editor at the Yemen Times, has researched how Middle Eastern women are portrayed in the media, and particularly on Al-Jazeera Arabic and Al-Jazeera English.

She concludes that Al-Jazeera's mission to break down the stereotypes of women still needs more effort and focus to fairly reflect women’s issues.

As with all Fellows’ research papers, any opinions expressed are those of the author and not of the Institute.
