Advancing Gender Equality in Media Industries

Theoretical background (I)

Gender and Digital Technologies

The first two videos on this week’s topic de Vuyst begins by clarifying central aspects such as her analytical framework she combined of Studies on Feminist Media, Journalism as well as Technology. These linked perspectives reveal for instance that gender representation of women in media declines towards higher age groups.
Additionally, she discusses the still ongoing digitalisation of media which has led to considerable changes of working conditions in the media industry bringing new challenges as well as possibilities for women.
