WOMEN IN THE MEDIA
The News Business: Still a Boys’ Club
A report by The Women’s Media Center reveals that women remain underrepresented in the nation’s newsrooms, both on TV and in online operations. Among major cable news networks, MSNBC showed the biggest gender gap with a staff comprised of 70 percent men and 30 percent women. “We live in a racially and ethnically diverse nation that is 51 percent female, but the news media itself remains staggeringly limited to a single demographic”, says the WMC report.
