International Media Standard on Disfigurement

Face Equality International Media Standard

​FACES joins global movement to urge Media to take care with language, tone, and imagery when covering disfigurement.

The FEI Alliance has developed the International Media Standard on Disfigurement with a view to supporting and advising on best practice by written and broadcast media professionals when covering disfigurement in the media. The Standard offers guidance on language, interviewing, showing respect and reducing the stigma around disfigurement.

The Standard has been developed in order to empower media professionals to reshape the way disfigurement and facial difference is described and represented in the public eye, with the goal of moving towards honest, informed and respectful media coverage.

Face Equality International and its member NGOs wish to work collaboratively with journalists, researchers and media professionals to support them in getting it right, rather than calling them out when they get it wrong.
