In South Africa, less than 20% of sources quoted in the news are women: our online database of woman+ experts is working to change that.
Why the + after Woman? Because our database is open to any expert in any field from any part of our society who identifies their voice with the project’s values and aims.
Quote This Woman+ is a non-profit company based in Hilton, KwaZulu-Natal, but working throughout South Africa. Our aim is to contribute to gender transformation of the media landscape through the use of woman+ voices and narratives that better correlate to South African demographics. We are building a body of woman+ experts in traditionally male-dominated fields to appear on panels and in the news, and we’re collating new narratives from this database with the aim of broadening the news agenda.
