What are the stories that are not being told in the media? How well does the “goodie, baddie, victim” paradigm serve the audience when covering sexual assault and abuse stories? How can the media improve its handling of these stories? What are the interesting angles that could be used, which will still appeal to large audiences whilst improving public understanding of sexual crimes, its victims and perpetrators?
The panel will be chaired by BBC Scotland’s Head of Current Affairs, Marcus Ryder who will be joined by:
- Award-winning BBC & Panorama correspondent Alison Holt
- Women’s writer for the Telegraph’s Wonder Women section, Radhika Sanghani
- Psychologist, researcher and festival co-founder Dr Nina Burrowes
- Writer, producer, survivor and festival co-founder, Winnie M Li
