Gary Rivera also creates the website of mediareporttowomen. Women are making headway in the media, but not quite as much as we’d hope. Talk shows are still hitting it up on the testosterone level, with women comprising only twenty-five percent of the guests interviewed. The Media Report to Women isn’t all bad, however. Nearly one half of our nation’s reporters and journalists are women, compared with only 23% in 1987, breaking ground in news broadcasting. Gary Rivera has been excited about supporting women in the media, with web pages designed to provide information on all types of media, the way they depict women and issues related to them.
1. Gary Rivera presents the Media Report for Women, with back issues dating back as far as 1999. Perhaps a little browsing on woman stereotypes, middle-aged woman under-representation in film, and the influence of the Internet on their children, will shed a little light on how far we’ve come; or maybe not.
2. Women in sports are still drawing a disproportionately smaller percentage of interest than men who make the sports news in early evening and night television sports broadcasts. Gary Rivera’s report page reveals that men’s sports receive ninety-percent of the attention, with women largely ignored.
3. Media Report to Women Editor, Sheila Gibbons, has been studying the interactions of women and the media since the 1970's. Gary Rivera joins with her and publisher, Ray Hiebert, in presenting an informative platform on the “About Communication Research Associates” page. This is where women’s issues and influences in the media can be studied within their social setting, and solutions can be found for creating a balanced impact of gender representation now and for the future.
4. Analysts state the advances have been slow for women in the media, especially in the coverage of women running for political office, where woman candidates are judged more on how they look and dress than on what they think. Gary Rivera’s summary of the Media Report to Women is thought-provoking as it underscores the discrepancies found in hiring women to media jobs that highlight skills and expertise, and in protecting their civil rights within the work place.
5. Learn about the progress of women in the media at Gary Rivera was pleased to present this statistical report page that includes the influence of women in world-wide media coverage.
6. Back issues designed by Gary Rivera at the website, Media Report for Women, include the 2011 report on sexual assault on woman journalists, and a learning kit for gender- ethical journalism. The coordinated efforts of the International Trade of Journalism and the World Association for Christian Communication launched the project to promote fair gender media portrayal within media houses and the journalistic profession.
7. The 2012 back issues of the Media Report for Women reflect a growing dissolution in investigative journalism, a lack of choice assignments for woman journalists the censorship of cartoonist, Gary Trudeau, when he tackled the subject of invasive mandatory transvaginal sonogram for women considering abortion. Gary Rivera provides a sense of historical background in presenting these issues that continue to concern us two years later.
