Description

Report: So you like a quick News update with your latte? But will you pay for it? Do you? If you are young and female the answer is most probably not. Males are more inclined to pay for online news, while women are trying to avoid it. 

Today's release of the Digital News Report 2019, produced by the News & Media Research Centre at the University of Canberra, is a fascinating read. Unfortunately some of what the UC team has uncovered is not good news for those of us who want women to stay informed and connected to issues that impact their lives. The research uncovers what until now has been little understood - the news gender 'paying' gap.



Here on BroadAgenda we are delighted to welcome back Dr Caroline Fisher fromUC's News & Media Research Centre, with a brief summary of the report's findings.
