Real News – with a twist.

A female millionaire rapes eleven-year-old boys. A continent’s richest man didn’t earn his money the way he claimed. A European country gets its first male ice cream. Weird stories? It’s exactly the way it happened — 
just genders got switched.

Sexism is so omnipresent, it has become almost invisible. SwitchNews is a news platform that curates a diverse range of news articles, with one slight change: male individuals get referred to as female — and vice-versa. Words are powerful and determine how we think. So the idea was to make hidden sexism in language visible. To motivate readers to ask questions, think critically, and raise awareness.
