In terms of the representation of women in society, great strides have been made in some areas, but less so in others. In new research using newspapers, magazines and online sources, Eran Shor examines the representation of women in the media, finding that 82 percent of the names mentioned are men’s. He writes that the underrepresentation of women is mostly down to the media’s near exclusive focus on individuals at the top of occupational and social hierarchies, who are still mostly men.
