ABSTRACT The research on the role of the media in women emancipation was conducted in Nation Television (NTV), Kampala-Uganda. The research was guided by the research objectives and the research questions. The research questions of the study were, to find out the causes of women’s marginalization in Uganda, to find out the challenges faced by the media in women’s emancipation in Uganda and to find how the media can promote women’s emancipation in Uganda. The first research question sought to find out the causes of women’s marginalization in Uganda and the findings reveal that; lack of education, traditional belief of women inferiority, dominance of men and poor government policy on women. The second research question sought to find out the challenges faced by the media in women’s emancipation in Uganda and the findings revealed that; inadequate resources, government attacks, poor cooperation with the public and poor access to information. The third research question sought to find out how the media can promote women emancipation in Uganda and the findings reveal that; organizing public dialogues, civic education on women’s rights, good public relationship with the media and airing of women’s abuse cases The researcher later concluded that the situation of women’s status in Uganda is still alarming and that something needs to be done to improve on the status of the women. Recommendations like educating of women, giving of lost loans among others were some of the recommendations advanced by the researcher after presenting and interpreting the data.
