🤔I no longer get asked by media for expertise on #globalhealthemergencies or #COVID19 - only on parenting (thanks, Scarlett). One of these things I have spent the last 10 years researching - the other I make up as I go along.

”Lack of women’s voices in the news, particularly in the UK and US. Only 19% of experts quoted in highly ranked coronavirus stories were women across the six countries. Fewer than one in four protagonists in the stories analysed were women.”
