Catherine Mayer: ‘I don’t know of one female journalist who hasn’t been discriminated against at work’

From many of our members, as well as Catherine, WE know that male cronyism, bullying and harassment, including undermining and disrespecting senior women and dismissing content relating to women as well as that written by women, are endemic in the media industry.

That is why WE have made equality in the media one of our core objectives. Equality in the media is essential because the media plays a fundamental role in examining and shaping our society and economy.
