Gender matters in Australian TV

Welcome to Media Matters, the School of Media, Film and Journalism seminar series. Media increasingly shapes cultures, industries, markets and values in different ways, in a time when understandings of news, media entertainment and media work experience profound shifts. Media Matters is a forum designed to explore contemporary debates and challenges of current media landscapes, employing combinations of media disciplines, expertise and industries.

Associate Professor Therese Davis (MFJ)
Amanda Lotz, Professor of Communication Studies and Screen Arts and Cultures (University of Michigan) 
Tessa Mills, Senior Manager, Policy and Research (Screen Australia)
Claire Perkins, Senior Lecturer in Film and Screen Studies (MFJ)

Does gender matter? The issue of gender bias in the screen industry is back on the agenda. Are women adequately represented in key creative roles and positions of influence in the Australian screen industry? Why are women screen creatives faring better in television than film? How does this compare internationally? How does gender equity in production affect content?
This panel will debate current trends, policy and strategies, including Screen Australia’s recent five point, 5-million-dollar strategic plan, Gender Matters. Panelists will also discuss these issues and initiatives affecting Australian women screen creatives in the international context of global TV.
