Qatari women rely on TV for news: study
- Qatar: Sunday, January 27 - 2013 at 05:13
A survey by Qatar's Social Rehabilitation Centre has found that one third of Qatari men relied on their 'majlis' (the outer portion of a traditional Qatari home where guests are entertained) to get day-to-day information and news, the Peninsula has reported. In contrast, a vast majority of Qatari women, who have no access to the majlis, depend on the media, particularly television, to keep abreast with events in the country, region and the rest of the world. Television was the most popular medium for the majority of respondents. Some 48.2% said they watched TV, four hours a day on average, to keep themselves abreast with the latest news. News channels were popular with 20% of the respondents, while 'mixed' channels were watched by 18.4%. In the third spot were religious channels (16.5%), the report said.
