For example, since 2005 the overall number of women newsmakers rose only by 1 percent - up to 24 percent in total in the traditional media (newspapers, radio, television). The new digital age did not stimulate the change either, as only 26 percent of newsmakers online are women. Only 1 out of 10 news stories features women and women's issues as their topics. Also, there has been no rise in the number of female reporters in the last decade. There is only 37 percent female reporters around the globe.

Article: Young and Wilders / Jong en Wilders (only in Dutch)

Keywords: Western Europe, the Netherlands, Dutch, Geert Wilders, youth, freedom of expression, conflict, media content, documentary, religion, social diversity models, visual, media organizations [EN] A documentary made by Zembla; 54 % of the youth, ranging from between 14 and 16 years old, think negative about Muslims. That came out of a research done by professor H. Dekker from the University of Leiden and the University of Utrecht. The research made clear that the most important reason for this negative attitude comes from the lack of direct contact with Muslims. Another reason for the negative feelings are the opinion of friends and parents. Boys are more negative than girls and an opinion of 15 years old today is difficult to change unless something very radical happens.  In the Zembla- episode ‘Young and Wilders’ young people talk openly about the problems that they have with foreigners and the Islam.   [DU] Een documentaire door Zembla;  54% van de jongeren, in de leeftijd van 14 tot 16 jaar, denkt negatief over moslims. Dat blijkt uit een onderzoek van professor H. Dekker van de Universiteit Leiden en de Universiteit Utrecht. Het onderzoek wijst verder uit dat de belangrijkste verklaring voor deze negatieve houding het gebrek aan direct contact met moslims is. Andere verklaringen voor de negatieve gevoelens zijn de mening van beste vrienden en ouders. Jongens zijn negatiever dan meisjes en een negatieve houding van een 15-jarige anno nu is moeilijk te veranderen tenzij er iets heel ingrijpends gebeurt. In de ZEMBLA-aflevering ‘Jong en Wilders’ praten jongeren openhartig over de problemen die zij hebben met allochtonen en de Islam.
