The BBC launched a 50:50 challenge in April 2018 to ensure that there were an equal number of male and female contributors (online and on-air).

One year on, nearly "three-quarters of BBC news and current affairs/topical programmes had an equal number of male and female expert contributors".

This article could be used for the Theory and Methods unit (feminism), and The Media.
