In this paper the authors explain how they investigated the issue of gender and the media in the UK, looking at how the audience feels about both the amount of coverage of men and women and their views on the quality and character of portrayal on TV, radio and online.
This article compares perceptions of UK consumers of the Sky Sports and BBC Sports websites. It is found that while the websites share some characteristics - both are 'liked' or 'loved' significantly more by men, and are seen as high quality, in control and successful.
