The third Glass Ceilings survey of South African media shows dramatic shifts. These are in both the race and gender composition of media since the first study. But black women are still not fairly represented in media decision-making and the pay gap is widening. This is clear especially in the age of digitisation. The old boys’ network is alive and well. In the #MeToo era the conversation is moving beyond numbers, to the patriarchal norms that fuel sexist attitudes and cyber misogyny. With the 25th anniversary of democracy approaching, the key message in the report is that #TimesUp for the South African media.  The media must walk the talk of gender equality!
