How do we measure gender balance?
1 Prominence of women
How prominent are women in stories? The WIN Gender Tracker measures how many times women are featured in an article vs men. It also looks at what proportion of the main characters in an article are women.
2 Inclusion of women's voices and perspectives
Stories shouldn't just be about women, they should be told from their perspectives too. The WIN Gender Tracker measures quotes by women sources, as well as the proportion of stories written by women.
