Gender Equal Media Scotland brings together academics, journalists, campaign groups and organisations working for women’s equality in Scottish media.
We want to see a Scottish media which treats women equally – as employees, as contributors and as subjects of media attention.
Within Scotland there is a huge range of expertise working on these issues, including fighting for women’s rights at work, challenging portrayals of violence against women in the Scottish press, and calling for more women’s voices to be heard in the media we all consume.
Gender Equal Media Scotland wants to support the various events happening around gender and media in Scotland.
