I changed my article yesterday, in order to make it more as an encyclopedia than a personal essay. Please advice me anything which would be useful to make it more suitable according to Wikipedia criteria. I must underline that I am a native French speaker, this is why I used many French sources. However, this article has been fully writen by me and not by a computer. Moreover, everything I wrote comes from relevent and credible sources, I did not invent anything. Finally, I do not understand what is an orphan article (even after reading the explaination on your website), could you, please, tell me what can I do to remedy.

Thank you for your attention and your help.

First, It's not your article. Though you did create it, anybody can edit it and contribute anything to it. Nobody owns articles. Not even Jimmy Wales. Second, I'm glad, but some bits of it appear to be original research in a sense. The way that you connect two topics that don't have a reliable source to connect them is original research unless a reliable source is produced to say what you're attempting to portray. What an orphan means is that other pages link to this page. Tutelary (talk) 16:23, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I would support renaming this page to 'Media and Gender Roles' or 'Media and Gender Perception'. I am of the opinion that the article is a little repetitive and would thus benefit from adding structure. I also believe that the subjects aren't clearly defined for my liking, we are talking about Women working in the media, Women's perception in the media, briefly about homosexuality. We maybe should split it in different parts with more evocative names (1.Traditional depiction, 2.Sexism, 2.1.Patriarchal views of masculinity, 3 Media Efforts, 3.1 From LGBT organisations -like Act Up-, 3.2.From Feminist Associations, 3.3.From Men's Right Association, 4.Controversy -declarations, View of Gender on Russian TV,..-, 5.A Changing landscape -Effects of women and LGBT journalists on the perceptions + Figures from a Think Tank. Let me know what you think of it. I can prepare a short draft.
