The ratio of women to men in the news is 1:3. It’s time to change this. In recognition of 8 March – International Women’s Day 2019, WAN-IFRA's Women In News is launching the 2019 International Women's Day Campaign: #balanceournews. Let’s come together to raise awareness about the lack of women's voices in news content, and demonstrate our community’s collective influence to find solutions to change this.
We invite everyone to join our #balanceournews campaign by publishing stories and features on your website, social media and/or in print to raise awareness about gender balance in the news and gender equality more generally: the problem, the challenges, great success stories, tech solutions. We’ve created two sample stories (included in the press pack below), as well eye-catching visuals for republishing or repurposing.
