1/24/2012 -- The Guardian -- "Leveson inquiry must address sexist media stereotypes, say women's groups" Equality Now, along with End Violence Against Women Coalition, Eaves Housing, and Object, spoke at the Leveson inquiry to address sexist stereotypes in the media.

Jacqui Hunt from Equality Now said the groups did not want to curtail the freedom of the press but wanted more responsibility. "Freedom of the press, yes it's really important, it's key but we have to find a way of making sure that women are not sidelined [and] objectified," she said.
