A couple of extra resources that might interest you:
The above mentioned study on women journalists and harassment in the US and Canada. A similar study in the Global South. Two videos on gender and communication rights, with a global framework.
Questions for you (answer one or all):
- Do you think a rights-based approach could be a policy solution to gender injustices regarding the media? If so, why; if not, why not?
- What issues would you prioritize?
- Who could or should monitor gender-based inequalities in participation and portrayal? Nationally/internationally?
To ensure your privacy, please email your answers to Dr. Siivonen who will then email them to me – and I will send you a synthesis response.
