GMMP2020 and why gender & media research is important - a podcast with me

The Global Media Monitoring Project (GMMP) is a worldwide media monitoring, research and advocacy project that takes ever five years produce a snapshot of the gender equality status in the news media around the world. Helsinki university is promoting the project by creating a website where they collect the Finnish work and provide more in-depth info. They have also produced interviews with four GMMP experts, all made by Yann Ilunga.  I am honoured to be one of the interviewees, named as "one of the key Nordic scholars of gender and the media". The other three interviews are with Philip Lee, Sarah Macharia, Claudia Padovani

You can find the interviews here:

Associate Professor Claudia Padovani, University of Padova – a seminar scholar in gender studies, with a specialization in gender and policy and involvement in many related global activities, such as the UNESCO Unitwin University Network on Gender Media and ICTs and the AGEMI project;
* General Secretary Dr. Philip Lee, WACC, on the history of GMMP; and
* Dr. Sarah Macharia – the Global Coordinator of the GMMP research project on the current developments. 

Of course i promoted the books Comparing gender and media across the globe, and Making Change. Nordic Examples of Working Towards Gender Equality in the Media (in advertising, film, gaming and journalism) both free to download though Nordicom.
