CMC senior lecturer writes for New Statesman

The New Statesman yesterday published an article by CMC’s Dr Heather Savigny, senior lecturer in politics, and Leeds Trinity University colleague Deidre O’Neill, associate principal lecturer in journalism,  about their research on the representation of women politicians in the British Press.

The article, “It’s 2014 – yet media and politics is still a man’s game”, discusses how guess what –  women politicians are less likely to speak, and when they do appear in the newspapers, the focus is much more likely to be on what they are wearing than what they are saying.

 The research has just been published in Journalism Education and was also picked up by the Financial Times.
