Listen to our playback:

A study shows 43% of women are interested in watching or listening to sports media(for women under 50 years of age), but only 12% of sports stories are reported or presented by women, and only 4% of stories have women as the central focus. Does the number of interested ladies compared with how many are reporting sports have anything to do with one another? What reasons contribute to the lack of opportunities women face when compared to their male counterparts in the sports industry? what can females bring to sports reporting that their male counterparts cannot? UNESCO Representative to China gives her opinion on Round Table.
