ABC to use only female presenters on International Women’s Day

THE ABC’s controversial man-ban, that will mean all TV and radio programs will be presented by women for a 24-hour period, has been billed by the broadcaster as an opportunity to “celebrate the achievements” of its female talent.

Meanwhile the ABC’s youth radio network Triple J will go one step further than having all female presenters – it will only play songs by female artists.

Over in Melbourne, meanwhile, traffic lights are being used to promote gender equality. As of today, new pedestrian traffic lights flashing female-looking figures will be installed across the city’s CBD, as part of a 12-month trial from VicRoads. (We’re wondering what could go wrong during the trial, could they be found to be too distracting).
