Representation in United Kingdom


man crying

Figures from a special survey on gender equality released by the European Commission today show that a majority of Europeans (54%) agree that it is acceptable for men to cry while a minority (44%) think that women's most important role in life is to take care of the home. The findings show a wide variation of gender stereotypes across member states. The data was published on a day when the Commission announced ideas on how to end the gender pay gap.

Distillation of terror

Since Gulf War 1, digital reporting on television and online has reshaped how we see conflicts. Against the immediacy of media imagery, Art, Conflict and Context provides an alternative perspective on war and its effects, drawing widely on John Keane's work including the struggle with Daesh and the impact of Guantanamo Bay.
