Monitoring, conducted within the frames of the project revealed that stereotypical thinking and attitudes dominate in Georgian media. Coverage of women related issues does not decrease, but, on the contrary, strengthens the gender stereotypes. Journalists are not aware of gender issues and, subsequently, operate within the realm of gender stereotypes reinforcing existing stereotypes through print, spoken text and video and photo images, as well as through non-gender sensitive coverage of issues.
