Dissertation Proposal

Gender Roles in the Broadcasting Industry

As I particularly enjoyed writing and researching the history of masculinity and femininity in the media I have decided to write about this topic for my dissertation in my third year. I feel that the topic is interesting and relevant, as nowadays gender equality is a prominent argument in our culture, as sexism still happens in the workplace and society in general.

Research topics:

  • Women in sports reporting
  • Male and female dynamics in news reporting
  • Comfort of females in the newsroom
  • Public views of female reporters versus male reporters
