AGM 2015 London Magazine Meeting

 

AGM 2015 London Magazine Meeting 

How do we stop sexism in the media?

 

The battle to stop the Sun’s daily humiliation of women with its topless Page 3 models appears to have succeeded – although the paper’s website still displays them. But the media industry is still rife with sexist behaviour. Sarah Anderson from #NoMorePage3will kick off a debate about the campaign itself, and the wider battle against discrimination in the newsrooms.


NUJ London Magazine Branch meeting, Monday 16 March, 6.30pm Fifth Floor, Headland House, 308-312 Gray’s Inn Road, WC1X 8DP (nearest tube, King’s Cross)
(Sandwiches and light refreshments provided. Baby sitting and reasonable travel costs covered)
