Wieso feministischer Radiotag?
On the 21. of ocotber community radios celebrate feminist radio day
Why do we need a feminist radio day?
The media sector is a cis-male domain. According to a study by the ZHAW less than 39% of the people who shape what we listen and see are women. ProQuote claims that only 2 of 12 public radio stations are directed by women. In these statistics people who identify as trans*, inter or non-binary are not even visible. Chief editors are usually male, the pictures painted of women and girls in media are full of clichés, many journalists suffer from sexual assaults at their workplae, topics are distributed according to gender roles – the list of reasons to focus on feminist media coverage is long.
