Part in English, Part in Italian

The panel addresses the challenges presented to the media covering male violence against women, and especially femicide (the killing of a woman because she is a woman). Looking at data and examples from both the UK and Italy, journalists and women’s rights experts will discuss the sexist bias often hidden within mainstream news narratives and debate the potential role of the media in reshaping traditional perceptions of gender-based violence and catalyze a cultural shift in society.
