Gender for Journalists
Developed by: Commonwealth Press Union / Trish Williams
Type of resource: web site
Target audience: General, Women
Cost: Free access
This on line toolkit developed by Trish Williams for the Commonwealth Press Union is a good resource for any journalist or communicator, and one to keep in mind if your organisation hosts an interactive news site. It offers an overview of basic gender issues and sexist terms, statistics, and further gender resources. Williams, a media consultant, developed the tool because journalists play such an important role in forming society opinion. The toolkit includes brief exercises to help journalists reflect on their own stereotypes, alternatives to sexist terminology, and underlines the responsibility of media regarding gender issues.
