Centre for Gender Equal Media

logoThe Centre for Gender Equal Media at Durham University is a new university think-tank generating evidence and policy ideas to work towards a gender equal media. Founded by a partnership between leading researchers and policy experts in the field, GEM offers an exciting opportunity to work with policy-makers, women’s organisations, campaigners and the media to shape new laws, policies and practices through the best social science research and policy engagement. GEM aims to facilitate a gender equal media that is equal, safe and accessible for all to enjoy, whether print, online or social media, pornography, film, gaming or music videos.
