How to make your stories gender-sensitive
A woman gets raped in a small village in Uttar Pradesh but it doesn’t make the front page.
Mainstream media struggles to jump onto the bandwagon of local reporters covering the crime against a Dalit woman in Hathras, but fall short by one major requiem- gender-sensitivity.
Nidhi Suresh and Akanksha Kumar were among the plethora of reporters who went to the ground to cover the Hathras gangrape.
In this episode of The Social Repair, we talk to them about their observations from the ground, things that they feel are missing from mainstream newsrooms like ground reporting and representation and finally a check in on their mental health.
