BBC news accused of gender bias
Friday 20 July 2012
The BBC has been accused of being "testosterone-fuelled" after nine times as many male experts than women were shown on its flagship nightly news bulletin.
Researchers from City University London carried out a study over a week watching the BBC's Ten O'Clock News. It said almost all the experts were men and only one woman featured on the programme on one night last month.
"I saw the news on June 13 and I was actually shouting at the screen 'where are the women.'" Said anti-discrimination campaigner, Miriam O'Reilly.
