According to a survey of India's leading media houses, conducted by Oxfam India and Newslaundry in 2019, these were the key findings:
No more than 5% of all articles in English newspapers are written by Dalits and Adivasis. Hindi newspapers fare slightly better at around 10%. Also, three out of every four anchors of flagship debates are upper caste. Not one is Dalit, Adivasi, or OBC.
We, Adivasis and Tribals, are the most prolific storytellers with a treasure of oral knowledge and history. Yet, mainstream media routinely ignores our voices and the stories that we have to tell. Over the last two years, #AdivasisAwaaz Academy has mentored over 140 digital storytellers, who have created 400+ original content pieces.
We now have the opportunity to tell our own stories. To get trained on this, register below.
