Media focus on 'gender wars' debases debate

Read Gender Institute Convener, Dr Fiona Jenkins' article:  Media focus on 'gender wars' debases debate (Canberra Times and Sydney Morning Herald, 21 June).

"As we head into an election increasingly portrayed in the media as a ''him and her'' spat, it seems to many as if the brawling is simply sidelining the really important issues from debate. But perhaps we should all take on responsibility for thinking about what the big issues are here, and bringing them back onto the agenda."
