Medienwoche: Representation of Women in the Media

Women are severely underrepresented in Swiss media coverage compared to men. Only about one in four people featured in media reports are female. According to a study by the University of Zurich, part of which was conducted by Sabrina Kessler, the gender gap has shas remained practically unchanged across all language regions and media types in Switzerland since 2015. A recent article by the Swiss platform discusses results of the study.
