What are the causes and consequences of the lack of women in the news? Gender equality and freedom of expression are fundamental values crucial for achieving a sustainable world. This webinar focuses on the (lack of) achievements for women in the media, and how to move forward.

The webinar is based on the project Comparing Gender and Media Equality Across the Globe, conducted by JMG, and presented in an anthology published by Nordicom. During the webinar, the main takeaways from the project will be discussed, and the Open Access GEM dataset will be introduced. After this, an international panel will share their thoughts about the project and discuss what needs to be done to reach a gender equal media world.
