2. Unequal Voices and Opinions

The sources we use: We use men sources more than women sources. When we do use women sources, they tend to be used more for personal experiences, opinions, emotional reactions or as witnesses, rather than as spokespeople, representatives or experts. Often men politicians will be sourced alongside women teachers or homemakers. Only 1 in 5 expert sources globally are women. [IWMF GMMP Report]

Who makes the news: Men also make the majority of the news. When we look at who creates the news, only 37% of news is by women. [IWMF GMMP Report]
