I’m really honoured to feature in an episode of the #OntheEngender podcast.
This episode brings you highlights from day two of ‘gendered representations in Scottish news’ hosted by Gender Equal Media Scotland. The podcast features discussions on who makes the news – gender imbalance in the media, abuse faced by women working in the media, and exciting new models of media creation.
It features contributions from:
- Doris Eikhof (University of Leicester)
- Deirdre O’Neill (Researcher on women and sports journalism)
- Libby Brooks (journalist at the Guardian)
- Claire Heuchan (freelance writer)
- Debbie Ging (Dublin City University)
- Margot McCuaig (Purple TV)
- Emma Meese (Cardiff University)
- Henna Zamurd-Butt (Media Diversified)
It was produced by Amanda Stanley for Engender and you can listen to it here!

I’m a novelist and award-winning documentary filmmaker.
My debut novel, 'The Birds That Never Flew', was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize and longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. 'Almost Then', my second novel, was published by Linen Press in April 2021.
I write, produce and direct documentary films and won Royal Television Society Scotland awards in 2015 with 'Jock Stein' and for 'Jim Baxter' in 2016. 'Jimmy Johnstone' was nominated for a bronze Torc for Excellence in 2017. My feature length documentary film 'Tommy Burns won a Royal Television Society award in 2019 and 'The Women Who Built Glasgow City' won the same award in 2021.
I made two children who are now making children too. That's the biggest achievement of all. I live in Glasgow, Scotland and Rathlin Island, Ireland.
