A study of gender differences in Australian media

This whitepaper presents the results of analysis of more than 9,597 reports from Australian press, radio and television news coverage throughout 2015 to investigate gender differences in the Australian media.

Press coverage was drawn from major metropolitan and national publications, while broadcast reporting was drawn from the major evening news bulletin on free-to-air television stations, AM on Radio National, and the 6pm News on 702 ABC Sydney. This chapter also includes results of audits of Q&A on the ABC and The Project on Channel 10, as well as of the hosts of leading Breakfast and Drive programs on AM and FM radio.

This is one chapter in a series of 6 that Isentia has released in association with Women in Media an initiative under the Media, Entertainments and Arts Alliance.
