Panel discussion / Czech language only
According to leading female Czech journalists, how does the public think about women? Can we change the status of women through media work that looks at women and nurtures sensitivity towards their position? Are today’s editorial offices capable of reflecting women’s more complex situation and accommodate them at work? Will the Czech public manage to talk about this issue without emotions, or would they rather sweep it under the carpet? And how are Czech media outlets doing on the issue of equal opportunities, pay, and other working conditions?
In cooperation with Aktuálně.cz.
