Contribution to publication Beperkt Zicht from Women Inc.
Women are less common in media than men. Research from the Commissioner of Media shows that between 2010 and 2015 their participation in TV-shows from public broadcasting has even decreased. Commissioned by Women Inc. the UU Graduate Gender Program together with Atria dove into the current state of affairs regarding the representation of women: how often do they appear in the media, in what role and are there differences between several media (television, radio, newspapers, online newssources, social media)?
