REPORT: ‘Who Makes the News’

Congrats to A/Prof Angela Romano, Australian Coordinator of the 2020 Global Media Monitoring Project, on the launch today of the ‘Who Makes the News’ Australia National Report ( she authored.

According to the report, ‘Findings reveal a mixed picture of progress, stagnation, and regression. While some glass ceilings are clearly being edged upwards, others are setting in on certain important news media gender equality indicators, The past five years have seen small incremental changes towards parity, at the same time, the overall pace of change remains glacial’.

Attention to news sourcing practices is critical and this work provides much-needed context and accountability. Well done and thank you, Angela, and team!
