Gender Representation in the Media is a new free online course which has been put together by colleagues in Gender Equal Media Scotland. It is an introductory 7-week course, which draws on expertise from researchers, journalists and content producers, and colleagues in the feminist and equalities sectors. There is a week specifically focused on violence, with input from Speak Out Survivors, Zero Tolerance, Rape Crisis Scotland and the Women’s Support Project. Additional content on commercial sexual exploitation sits within the week on sexualisation and body image. Other themes addressed on the course include gender monitoring, politics (where we also deal with online abuse), sport and feminist media. https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/gender-and-the-media
