Panel Discussion: Rethinking the role of women in cultural and media professions: A European comparison

Which concrete measures are most effective to dismantle the glass-ceiling and to advance gender equality?

On May 10, 2017, an interesting line-up of panelists presented at the Hertie School of Governance collected data on gender equality and explained which measures have been already put into practice on an European level and which still need to be realized .

For the European audiovisual sector, the European Women’s Audiovisual Network´s (EWA) recommendations for a number of actions that would allow to fill the gap between women and men were presented by Suzanne Pradel:

  • Introducing the notion of „gender of a film project“
  • Attributing additional points/incentives wherever the project is to be considered a female driven project
  • Attributing additional points/incentives when the project is directed by a women
  • Introducing a gender related data collection in the application system to national and international funds and in the reporting of fined projects (festival, training, distributed films, participation in markets).
  • Introducing a preference for projects including initiatives enhancing female driven content (festivals, promotion of works online, access to markets, film education)
  • Supporting training and other measures (mentoring, networking, etc) aimed at making women careers in the audiovisual sector sustainable
  • Introducing the support to European networks of individuals who work in the audiovisual sector in a non-profit-making capacity and having among heir goals gender equality.

May 10, 17: Panel discussion at the Hertie School of Governance

Rethinking the role of women in cultural and media professions: A European comparison

Despite mainstreaming efforts by the European Union and the Council of Europe, gender inequality persists for women in all areas of the economy. In the culture and media sector, the pay and pension gaps are even worse than in other fields. There is also a significant under-representation of women among the leading positions, in boardrooms, and as recipients of awards. While there is widespread consensus that raising awareness does help to dismantle the glass ceiling, which concrete measures are most effective? What can we learn from our European neighbours? The results of this discussion will contribute to a research project currently being conducted at the Hertie School’s Centre for Cultural Policy. [more]
