Expert Women

The Broadcast website has been running a campaign to increase the gender balance in the use of experts on news programmes. The BBC, Broadcast’s monitoring suggests, is particularly bad when it comes to using expert women.

That could soon change with the launch of a database of ‘expert women’ by the BBC, ready to be called upon should the news agenda require an informed opinion or some expert analysis.
