Gender Equality and Social Justice in Public Media

The eight country study of public radio and television, lead by Greta Gober & Diana Iulia Nastasia, measured representation of gender and other social justice measures such as age, ethnicity, and sexual diversity, across four continents and eight countries. It has revealed that gender inequalities persist on both radio and television. Men account for a majority of those who speak in the public media across countries and continents. Additionally, there is little to no diversity among those who speak in the media in terms of sexuality, age, ethnicity, and ability. Besides the deep denial of the voice of women, female subjects are stereotypical and over sexualized.
