The media have muted the voices of women during COVID-19: can the tide be turned?

The media have muted the voices of women during COVID-19: can the tide be turned? Journalists need to be sensitised to the need for gender representation in media content. Gallo Images/Getty Images Theodora Dame Adjin-Tettey, Rhodes University COVID-19 has distressed societies to the core. Among the fault lines it has exposed is the fact that gender bias remains rampant in news coverage. A recent special report – The Missing Perspectives of Women in COVID-19 News – shows that too few women experts have been quoted on the pandemic in the media.

Three women: stories of Indian trafficked brides

Three women: stories of Indian trafficked brides Cornfield/Shutterstock.com Sreya Banerjea, SOAS, University of London “I tried to escape in the middle of the night,” Mahira* recalled. “With a small packed bag, I tiptoed towards the door thinking that he was asleep. Suddenly, he grabbed me from behind and attacked with a cutlass.” I sat, stunned, as she lifted her saree and revealed a wide scar below her knee.

Pauses in the busy lives of migrant Indian women can make a big difference SriPallavi Nadimpalli, University of Melbourne and Iderlina Mateo-Babiano, University of Melbourne Women manage many overlapping responsibilities in both public and private spheres. Their busy routines leave them with just a little time to take a break or a pause in their activity.

Women leaders and coronavirus: look beyond stereotypes to find the secret of their success

Women leaders and coronavirus: look beyond stereotypes to find the secret of their success Kate Maclean, Northumbria University, Newcastle Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand, Tsai Ing-Wen of Taiwan and Angela Merkel of Germany have all been singled out for the way they have handled the coronavirus pandemic.
