Women in Film and Television is proud to co-produce The Power List in association with Screen International and Broadcast. The List highlights the top 50 women working in the UK media industry. The last edition was released on International Women's Day, 8th March 2012. To read the digital version of The Power List, click here.
Here's the address our CEO, Kate Kinninmont, made in the publication:
"We at WFTV are very aware that women are still too few in important media jobs, worse paid in many roles and too easily pushed out of the industry as they age. But we also see the fantastic progress that women are making and we are keen to celebrate it. There are 50 extraordinary women on this Power List. Every one of them has earned her place through talent, hard work, perseverance and sheer dogged ability.
We salute them all. Lists are always contentious and the team at Broadcast, Screen and WFTV have had many lively debates – and not a little arm-wrestling – as candidates for inclusion were discussed. We’re well aware that a different team could come up with a substantially different list and we’re all agreed that we don’t have enough black or ethnic minority names on our list. Perhaps I’m inviting a deluge, but I’d be pleased to see your list –and your arguments for the inclusion of women we’ve missed out this year.
One thing I do know: the women included here are all exceptional achievers. They help keep the UK at the forefront of the creative industries worldwide and are an inspiration to us all."
