This article is by Polis Summer School student Farah Hesdin (@farahhesdin) Who did I turn to in my search for news as I freshly arrived to the UK? The BBC, of course. An instinctive choice almost, I started tuning in the BBC News Channel for my daily news digest. Shock. What immediately struck me, coming from a place where Lebanese television was my main source of broadcasting news, were the anchorwomen. Why on earth were they dressed so ‘simply’? No revealing clothing? No extravagant hairstyling and heavy makeup? Wow. What a change, I could finally focus on the news.
