CapeTalk 567AM: Help boost women’s voices in the media with this innovative database

CapeTalk 567AM: Help boost women’s voices in the media with this innovative database. “In South Africa, like almost everywhere else in the world, statistics show that a woman is interviewed in the news as an expert only once for every four times that a man is. Less than 20% of sources quoted in the news are women, says NPO Quote This Woman +. In order to change that reality, Quote This Woman + was born, a group of volunteers that curated a database of women experts that journalists can access when they’re looking for somebody to quote, and to help close the gender gap.”
