TWENTY-NINE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA PARTICIPATED IN THE CONSULTATION ON PORTRAYAL OF WOMEN BY THE MASS MEDIA. THEY EXPRESSED A WILLINGNESS TO SUPPLY FURTHER INFORMATION AND TO IMPLEMENT THE COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDATIONS, ESPECIALLY THOSE RELATED TO EDUCATION AND SOCIAL WELFARE, AND SUGGESTED THAT THE COMMISSION IDENTIFY PRESENT LIMITATIONS OF MASS MEDIA'S PORTRAYAL OF WOMEN AND MAKE THEM KNOWN TO THE POLICYMAKERS OF THE COMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY.
