New York visit for Emma Heywood as UN discuss women and media - 2nd April
Working with the University of Sheffield
The event last month brought together six expert commentators from academia and the media to consider the question "Does the online space allow women in media to challenge stereotyping and misrepresentation?" Panel members were asked to discuss the successes they have achieved and the challenges they have faced in their efforts to develop an online presence.
Emma was invited to take part in her capacity as Lecturer in Journalism, Politics and Communication at the University of Sheffield and leader of the FemmePowermentAfrique project, assessing the impact of radio on women's empowerment in Africa.
