This will be a panel discussion of how the front pages of national newspapers  portray women in terms of content and bylines


We began six weeks of studying the front pages of national newspapers from Monday November 7 2016 and from  Monday June 1, 2017.
We looked at the Daily Mail, the Daily Express, The Sun, the Daily Mirror, the Daily Star, The Indpendent (they put an online front page up), the Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Times, Metro, The i, and the London Evening Standard.
The following Sunday, we did the Sunday versions, minus Metro, The i and Evening Standard  and we added in the Sunday People.
The research will be published to coincide with this debate.
