Men typically outnumber women by 4:1 on a huge range of news and current affairs programmes across channels. And where women are used, they often feature as case studies or victims. This affects the worldview of every viewer and listener. We want broadcasters to better reflect the nation and the increasing numbers of women in professional positions and to provide more positive role models for young women. 30 percent is a realistic target and without it, broadcasters will only pay lip service to equality and nothing will change.

      The title should be include "ensure AT LEAST 30%". Women have very intelligent minds too, and their expert opinions would be of great value

      Sexism shouldn't exist in modern times. If a woman deserves the job, she should get it!

      I've always felt that women are at a great disadvantage, not only are there not enough of them, they rarely get as long as the men to speak. It was blatently obviousat the "Free Thinking" forum @Sage Gateshead earlier this month. Even comments & questions from the audience women were not often called on. Some did'nt bother to put their hands up after a while.
