Women and the media forum: Meet the gatekeepers

30 October, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


How do you get your voice heard, your story published, your opinion represented in the media – if you’re a woman?

A recent study by UTS academics found men dominate Australian media’s quoted sources, political opinion columns and bylines. So how do we elevate the voices of women in the media and public debates, areas currently dominated by men?

Meet our panel of women working across news, television, and radio with extensive experience in selecting content, choosing sources, pitching angles and penning bylines:

  • Julie Lewis, Opinion Editor at Sydney Morning Herald
  • Charis Chang, Senior Journalist at news.com.au
  • Julia Holman, Reporter at ABC’s 7.30
  • Chaired by Verity Firth, Executive Director of UTS Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion.
