Less than 1 in 4 ‘on-air’ voices are women
A new survey conducted by the National Women's Council of Ireland shows that less than one quarter of voices in radio news and current affairs broadcasting are women. The survey was conducted in March as part of research for the NWCI submission to the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) for the draft Code on fairness and objectivity in news and current affairs. It shows that Ireland's current affairs programmes are everywhere dominated by male voices as presenters, expert guests, in headlines, sports and business.
