Women Against Feminism and Media Against Paying Interns

The best of Breakfast  – 11 to 14 August

The all-encompassing story of the week was the death of Robin Williams. Media across the globe has struggled to report his death in ways that follow suicide reporting guidelines and I felt the need to speak with one organisation that teaches media on the best ways to cover a sensitive topic.

An interview that may cut close to the bone at the volunteer-driven Radio Adelaide was the unsurprising discovery that the media exploits young workers through unpaid internships more than any other profession. Take a listen and draw your own conclusions!

Over a year ago we brought a series of regular contributors to Breakfast under the Feminist Insider banner. This chat with Claire Tatyzo from the YWCA managed to take some pretty uneducated views to their illogical conclusions.
