We started our campaign “End t Sexism in Media” by saying "Page three girl" in papers, "Victim" or "Monster" in women's talk shows, "Selfless Mother", "Good girl" or "Femme-fatale" in TV serials, Wrapped in "Flag" or "Veil" on politics pages, and generally "Backstage" and "Invisible" Enough is enough!. Book of “End to Sexism in Media” which includes campaign activities -presentations of conference “For a Nonsexist Media” and research on “Forms of Representation of Women in Media” -has published.
End to Sexism in Media! campaign aims to contribute to;
-the creation of media where women do not undergo violation of rights, exposure and gender discrimination,
-the prevention of the representations of women around traditional roles such as victims, sexual objects, holy mothers, symbols of honor, and as a second sex dependent on men,
-the prevention of women from being ignored in the arenas of politics, economics and international relations, which fall outside the magazine and 3rd page news,
-encouraging women to be represented in media with their various skills, professions and sides in a balanced manner,
-giving place to women in "head"s (administration) and "corner"s (column, commentaries) where men dominate almost all,
-composing media ethics which is not sexist by discussing with all the respondents,
-thus play a role as an altering/transforming medium.
Except visual and press bulletins of campaign, you could find
-Research on “Forms of Representation of Women in Media” includes two weeks research which watches violations of women's rights, discrimination and sexism forms in media by following television and radio channels, daily newspapers and web sites.
