WOMEN AND THE MEDIA

In the last year over 12 million women used the #metoo hashtag to share their personal stories of sexual harassment in the work place and beyond. We’ve seen Harvey Weinstein hand himself into the police, women take a stand on red carpets and finally women’s testimonies are starting to be heard. This is an opportunity talk about sexism in the British film and television industry, on and off screen. From morning chat show television, news reports to high budget drama, how can women start reclaiming the space? 

Chaired by television producers and hosts of the DAS Podcast, Charlie Brades-Price and Rubina Pabani, we ask the panel the following question: Is raised awareness enough to change the way the media runs?
