Women is not inferior to men and needs to be treated equally. The media should project this to change the mind set of people said, Dr.Anitha Ravi Shankar,Director,Centre for Women’s studies, Mangalore University while delivering the inaugural address at the workshop for students on women and media at Brahmavar based Crossland College.
Regardless of the type of media, we could see stereotypes that perpetuate gender discrimination. Women are less likely to be portrayed as leaders and role models. Women have an equal right to participate in public debate, including in the media, and offer insights and ideas that must be heard. The stereotypical mind set of society should change. The media, which is a powerful weapon of change, should be able to highlight this reality, she added.
