Ageism and sexism in the media: Seminar on 3 October 2013

by on October 1, 2013

I’m looking forward to attending the seminar on Thursday to launch the Charter on Ageism and Sexism in the Media. This event is organised by the New Dynamnics of Ageing Programme with a focus on how older people, particularly older women, are portrayed in the media.

The aim is to bring together researchers and policy makers together to discuss this issue and the creation of a new agenda to combat ageism and sexism in the media.

Details of the event can be found via this link.

We attended the earlier seminar in this series so it’ll be interesting to see how things are moving along and to hear more about their work from researchers Ros Jennings and Lorna Warren. Also the input from the journalists.
