A Chat with Luba Kassova about Missing Perspectives of Women in News
12 February, 2022
After coming across The Missing Perspectives of Women in News and in COVID-19 News reports, Phoebe Saintilan decided to launch the Missing Perspectives global platform whose mission is to drive social impact through challenging the underrepresentation of young women in news worldwide. In this podcast Phoebe and Hannah Diviney, Editor-in-Chief of the Missing Perspectives news platform, sat down with Luba Kassova to talk about the landmark reports. From women's underrepresentation as protagonists and experts in the news; their frequently skewed portrayal as disempowered; to women's marginalised voices in stories about violence against them, Luba, Phoebe and Hannah cover numerous aspects of the problem, as well as many solutions available to newsmakers who want to produce more gender equitable news coverage.
