Abstract: Reading the mainstream print media publications in Lesotho leaves one with the impression that politics in the country is a preserve for males only. Most of the newspaper headlines are dominated by male politicians, week in and week out. Rarely do women or female politicians feature prominently on the front pages of these newspapers as news. This raises the question whether it is deliberate for the newspapers to prop up male politicians at the expense of their female counterparts. This takes place in an environment where, statistically, women are more than men in number. This study therefore sought to explore and establish the reasons why coverage of female politicians is less evident as compared to the prominence given to their male counterparts in print media in Lesotho. The study was qualitative in approach as it envisaged unraveling why there is this imbalance in gender when it comes to the coverage of politicians in the country. The methods used to gather the information were in-depth face to face and telephony interviews with newspaper editors and their journalists, female politicians as well as with male and female legislators, media stakeholders and ordinary citizens. The findings were presented, discussed and analysed thematically.
