At the International conference Gender Differentiation and Media Industries organized by the Peace Institute and the Faculty of Social Sciences last week, the participants discussed gender inequalities in the media, at the intersection of media politics, production, representation and consumption. 30 speakers from 12 countries analyzed media policies and identified their effects on the gender differentiation of journalistic work. They highlighted inequalities in the field of media distribution, analyzed audiences and discussed framing of femininity and masculinity in media texts and images. The conference is part of the research project financed by the Slovenian Research Agency.
