Description

I hosted a seminar for National Union of Journalists Scotland based on their project, a Stronger Voice for Women in the Media. It aims to highlight and improve issues affecting women working in the media and improve how the media represents women and girls.The project addresses the key characteristics identified in the Fair Work Framework - to provide workers with an effective voice, opportunity, job security, career fulfilment and respect in the workplace.
It is funded via the STUC under the Trade Union, Fair Work and Modernisation Fund. Women talked about their experiences of equal pay, precarious working, life as a freelancer and editors attitudes to feminist issues.
