i got this sentence off the internet but i want to change it into my own words, could you please change it into something an 8th grader/year 8 student would write :)
Violence against women is a systemic, social problem rooted in persistent gender inequity, and is often marred by myths and misconceptions. The media isn’t solely responsible for this; we all participate in sustaining this status quo. Nevertheless, news media inform us, and has a responsibility to do so accurately. And it’s in this space where our research can be of benefit.

<<<Nevertheless, news media inform us, and has a responsibility to do so accurately.>>>
This sentence is not correct. Most people see "media" as plural; some use it as singular. But you have used it both ways.
Use either "media inform us" and "have the responsibility" (preferred) or "media informs us" and "has the responsibility".
