Hello! I read the book “She Said”, by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, published in 2020.
The book is written by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, the two journalists from The New York Times who broke the story on Harvey Weinstein, one of the articles which kickstarted the international #metoo movement.
What I found compelling about this book was the examination of the relationship between women, feminism and media, a relationship which has been hostile for the longest time. Even though the media is supposed to be on the side of the public and speak truth to power, a lot of times newspapers and TV stations end up supporting powerful people and the status quo, because these institutions are owned by capitalists.
How we approach women’s rights in the media is one of the 15 topics explored in a series of videos I’m working on, as part of the EGALIS project.
The "EGALIS: Gender equality through social change and education" project, developed by the Partnership for Equality Center, in partnership with the Front Association, AnA - the Scientific Society for Feminist Analysis, ACTEDO - the Action Center for Equality and Rights Association Man, PLURAL Association and SEX vs The STORK Association, with financial support from Active Citizens Fund Romania, programme funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants Grants 2014 -2021.
