We need more women...

Quoting the Re:Invention blog:
The world desperately needs more women media spokespersons. According to the Global Media Monitoring Project (2005) and the White House Project....
  • Women make up only 21 percent of all people featured in the news.
  • Women represent only 14 percent of all company spokespersons and 17 percent of all experts quoted in the news.
  • Women are twice as likely as men to be portrayed as victims in the news.
  • Women represent a mere 14 percent of all Sunday morning political talk show guest appearances.
Do you consider yourself to be an expert? Are you knowledgeable in your business area? Yes! Then get yourself in the media and quoted talking positively (or constructively) about your work, your industry, and your world.
