Video: Laura Bates – Media and the image of women

In this video, Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, outlines her views on the portrayal of women in the media.

Bates spoke at two-day conference in Amsterdam earlier this month, organised by the Council of Europe and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands.

The Everyday Sexism Project catalogues “ instances of sexism experienced by women on a day to day basis.” Bates took these issues to Facebook and persuaded the online social network giant to remove pages that glorify violence against women.
