The media doesn’t tell people how to think. However, it does shape our perception. As a result, film and television can play a major role in supporting gender equality.
That is, if the media industry is able to conquer its own gender equality issues.
People working to create gender balance in film and media have experienced early success.
Non-government organizations like the Geena Davis Institute and prominent philanthropists like Lady Jamileh Kharrazi work hard to boost the impression of women in the media.
