Nordic Gender & Media Forum is about creating a platform for discussion about gender equality in the media. The project is managed by Nordicom at the University of Gothenburg. The project will collect gender based statistics for the Nordic media industry (film, journalism, advertisement and computer games) and present that knowledge as a basis for discussion at different seminars during spring 2014 and a conference i Bergen on May 7th.
Nordic Gender & Media Forum is aiming to gather business, researcher, activists and stakeholders within the media sector in the Nordic Countries and elsewhere. You can attend a single seminar, or participate in all events, it is up to you. The project will gather conclusions, good practices and statistics in a book.
The project can be seen as a regional follow up on the Beijing Platform for Action from 1995.
Nordic Gender & Media Forum is financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers and run by Nordicom at the University of Gothenburg.
