Do you think there’s a problem of sexism in the media?  You can call it out here.

Have you been subjected to sexism or harassment in your job as a journalist?

You’ve maybe been told to present a story in a certain way, an inappropriate headline has been added, or your material has been edited changing the emphasis.

Bullying or harassment at work may be the issue.  You may be working for an employer or as a freelance.  You may feel unable to raise your concerns at work in case of repercussions, in case it affects work opportunities or for other reasons.

The NUJ has created a way that you can report your concerns, anonymously if you wish.  Your complaint will not be published but we will have a record should you need it at some point in the future.

Just fill in the comment box below with details of your complaint and a link to the original publication or broadcast where available.  If you want us to contact you direct you can email stopmediasexism@nuj.org.uk and we’ll get back to you.

As stated above, your comments will not be published but we will use this information to help bring about change to stop media sexism.

 

 

As a reader/listener/viewer are you concerned about an article or broadcast that misrepresents women? Have you been treated unfairly by the media because of your gender?

This could be about the way an issue has been reported or covered by the media.

You may be concerned about an article you’ve read, use of inappropriate photos or the general tone being unfavourable to women.  It may be about sexual bias, victim blaming or suggesting a sexist and/or derogatory attitude towards women.

It may be images used that objectify women, it may be that an article or headline suggests a victim is to blame, it may be an example of serious issues affecting women being trivialised or sensationalised or leading to individuals or groups being marginalised.

The NUJ has created a way that you can report your concerns, as a consumer, anonymously if you wish.  Your complaint will not be published but we will have a record should you need it at some point in the future.

Just fill in the comment box above with details of your complaint and a link to the original publication or broadcast where available.  If you want us to contact you direct you can email stopmediasexism@nuj.org.uk and we’ll get back to you.
