A commentary text to report. Extract from the chapter: "Looking ahead, one might hope to see the media industry itself solving the problem of so many missing voices in the news. But the past track record would suggest otherwise; very few newsrooms are frontrunners, apart from reaching parity in some news rooms in terms of numbers of women and men in the staff. The news content is still very male- dominated. The persistent lack of female voices and experiences in public debate is in fact a threat to sustainable development and democracy. With this in mind, both the media industry and the State Parties must take adequate action. Freedom of expression and gender equality are two fundamental values in society. Those opposed to these values are few and far between, especially in the Nordic countries. In practice, however, with so many women silenced or depicted in narrow, stereotypical ways, there are still many problems and much to be done before we can talk about real freedom of expression. It is becoming more evident that these two core values in society, freedom of expression and gender equality, are dependent on each other; one cannot have one without the other. "
