Research has shown that, on average, only about 24% of people questioned, seen, heard or read about in the media in Thailand are women

The media, as champions of freedom of expression committed to promoting diversity, should treat this imbalance as a threat to the free expression of half the world's population.

It is essential that the media in Thailand interview more female sources. Getting more women on the news needs to be a consistent commitment to achieve gender quality and better, more diverse media coverage overall. 

We are calling on people and media across Thailand to commit to ensuring that at least 30% of all sources interviewed in the news are women, working towards 50% in the longer term. 

By pledging to support enabling more Thai female experts to be seen and heard through our online database of Thai female experts, we hope to close this gap.

Our online database Women Make the News – Thailand aims to link journalists with Thai female voices they may struggle to find through traditional sourcing methods. ฐานข้อมูลออนไลน์  Women Make the News – Thailand มีเป้าหมายที่จะช่วยเป็นตัวเชื่อมระหว่างนักข่าวและผู้เชี่ยวชาญสตรี   

Our database provides the media in Thailand with a list of Thai women experts across a wide range of professions and continues to grow daily. ฐานข้อมูลของเราจะมีรายชื่อผู้เชี่ยวชาญสตรีในหลากหลายสาขาและวิชาชีพสำหรับสื่อไทย
