Did you know that when it comes to news around the world, men are represented up to six times more than women?

A study done across six different English-speaking countries shows that women are consistently under-represented in journalism, both in the newsroom and in the news coverage itself. BFM speaks to Ding Jo-Ann, adviser to the Centre for Independent Journalism, to discuss the results and how it relates to Malaysia and some potential solutions to this issue.
