The BBC gave extensive coverage to Boko Haram’s kidnapping of 200 Nigerian girls but continues to ignore the murder of hundreds of boys by the same group at the same time. It works sedulously to raise awareness of female circumcision but ignores the extensive problems caused by male circumcision.
Year after year it published the same line about the wage “gap” without mentioning how it is affected by women’s career choices. It never mentions the prejudices that lie behind the gender gap in prison sentencing, homelessness or industrial deaths. It publicises Sandi Toksvig’s launch of the women’s equality party but ignores J4MB, the only political party dedicated to men’s rights.
It invites an all-female audience to a debate with Mike Buchanan of J4MB about gender equality issues in Ashfield, a highly marginal constituency. The debate is chaired by a woman and features Gloria de Piero, Shadow Minister for Women, who was selected from an all-women shortlist.
It holds no similar debate for men. It fails to invite Ray Barry, standing in the adjacent constituency for the same party, to a debate with all the other candidates.
Here are 77 more examples of the BBC’s biased approach to gender equality and its consistent demonization of men.
The BBC failed to invite candidate Ray Barry to a debate in Broxtowe, and ensured that candidate Mike Buchanan faced an all-female audience to debate gender issues in Ashfield. The reason? They are both men's rights campaigners.
