How Women Are Being Left Out of the News

Did you know that when it comes to news around the world, men are represented up to six times more than women? A study done across six different English-speaking countries shows that women are consistently under-represented in journalism: both in the newsroom, and in the news coverage itself. We look at the results of the report and link them to Malaysia, as well as discuss some of the potential solutions to this issue.
