The challenge our initiative – The Journalistic Review – seeks to address is to promote human rights, civil rights, diversity, tolerance, equality between women and men, and to raise ecological awareness of the society.
This is why it is also important to influence not only society’s choises (e.g. when voting), but also a worldview of local and national politicians, decision-makers and businessmen. It is extremely important these days to use democratic ways of inluence that the Fourth Estate can create in order to uphold a state of justice, rights of minorities and basic democracy rules, such as trias politica principle (separation of powers) or respecting Polish Constitution.
We also find it important to change politicians’ opinions and to evoke a serious discussion about ethics and democracy in Poland. The “Journalistic Review” has protested against the fact that the Polish Parliament passed controversial and undemocratic changes to the Constitutional Tribunal, implemented media bill (which triggers concern for freedom), and has taken big steps towards an abortion ban.
The demographical statistics of the website are following: the “Journalistc Review” is read by people aged 25-34 years (33.5% of the total), 18-24 years (27.5%), 35-44 years (15.5%), 45+ years (23.5%). These are rather men (54%) then women (46%).
In the vast majority, they come from Poland (83%), but there are also some readers from the United Kingdom (5.5%), Germany (2.2%), the USA (2%), Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, Israel, Norway, France, Kenya, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Canada, Sweden, Ukraine, Denmark, Italy and Australia (95% of all visitors are from Europe). They live in the biggest Polish cities: mostly in the capital of Poland – Warsaw (22%), but also in Lodz (7%), Krakow (5%), Wroclaw (5%), Poznan (5%), Gdansk (3%), Katowice (2%).
