Is there a Nordic way to deal with gender equality in the media? As the contributors to this book will show you, there is not just one way or one solution. Every step forward must be locally and culturally situated. The lack of gender equality in the media is often an echo of lack of gender equality overall. Making change and altering limiting norms in the media is not about one individual project, nor can one legislation or self-regulation change everything. But everyone can contribute from their position and share knowledge and good practices and make change. Maybe that is the Nordic way – a plurality of ways to make media gender equal.
