New Feminist Newsletter The Evidence Makes Research on Gender Inequality Widely Accessible

March 4, 2024 1998

Gloria Media, with support from Sage, has launched The Evidence, a feminist newsletter that covers what you need to know about gender inequality, all in one place. The newsletter takes the latest in social science research on gender equality and makes it accessible and useful to everyone who may need it, whether they’re trying to change their community, their workplace, or the laws of their country. (Sage is the parent of Social Science Space.)

Today, the first issue investigates the ideological gap between the men and women of Gen Z, digging into the research data, looking at the implications and exploring what we as individuals can do about it.

New issues will appear on the fourth Monday of each month, with each issue exploring a different aspect of gender inequality, spotlighting a unique story about how local initiatives, projects, or policies have successfully tackled challenges highlighted by research. The Evidence team will share the most recent discoveries, insights, and advances in the study of gender such as closing the gender pay gap, distributing care responsibilities more evenly, and incorporating feminist principles in combating climate change.

The Evidence is written by Josephine Lethbridge, a veteran in bridging research and journalism with evidence-based stories that use research to spark positive social change.

The newsletter is sponsored by Sage, a global independent academic publisher committed to supporting research and initiatives that transform society. “Sage is proud to announce the launch of The Evidence: Everything You Need to Know about Gender Inequality in One Place,” said Sage’s President of Global Publishing Ziyad Marar. “This initiative is the latest step we have taken to help amplify the voices of researchers and scholars, to ensure they have the impact they deserve. We’ve been debating how to improve the path from the academic ivory tower to the public sphere for years. Now is the time to move from debate to action.”

Marar continued, “Under the skilled and passionate journalistic vision of Megan Clement, known for her deep engagement with issues of gender inequality, and the adept skills of Josephine Lethbridge in making academic ideas accessible we are confident that this monthly newsletter will serve as a pivotal tool in addressing the persistent challenge of gender inequality. It aligns with Sage’s enduring mission: ‘Building bridges to knowledge’, by effectively conveying research evidence to the public on this critically important matter.”

Globally, millions of people work to advance feminist causes such as activists, policymakers, and NGOs, but the problem is that research into gender inequality rarely reaches people outside of academia. The Evidence exists to help get research into the hands of the people who need it and in a format that’s accessible.
