Representation Thoughtpiece

As mentioned, here is the article from Bella Caledonia. Remember, this is an overtly Indy Scotland supporting site, but the focus of this article is not about that directly. What it does do is questions why the representation of women (amongst others) is so poor in the media and news in particular. As an added thing to consider, does the form (i.e.: News) matter? Is there more importance given to the news, and so fewer women are represented because their opinions are deemed less valuable than mens’? If so, what are we to make of the fact that the main protagonists, Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon, are women?

Anyway, here’s the link: A Smugasbord of Scotsmen
