In Costa Rica, the advancement of communication rights with a gender perspective is a debt. Despite being a pioneer in the Central American region, the Law on Criminalization of Violence against Women (2007) does not contemplate symbolic violence or media violence, as if its counterparts do in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua (Ochoa, 2019). Advances in the demand for communication rights with a gender perspective have come hand in hand with civil society and the public university. Such as the creation of the Observatory of Image of Women in Advertising (Center of Research on Women's Studies) of University of Costa Rica. Regarding the initiatives from civil society, GEMA, Gender and Media Regional Observatory have the Costa Rican chapter of Project GMMP and the ACCEDER Association, the organization that addresses representation media of them. The main goal of these initiatives is to organize public opinion regarding media representation of women and contribute to the articulation of citizen demands in the face of media industries.
