"A new study, the first of its kind in 16 years, which surveyed 577 female journalists across all media platforms in Australia has found that there is still widespread gender discrimination in newsrooms.
The report is built on earlier findings from the Media, Entertainment, and Arts Alliance (MEAA) and the International Federation of Journalist (IFJ), which revealed significant issues around equal opportunity in promotion, job segregation, sexual harassment, and childcare.
Following the release of the report in 1996, a total of seven recommendations were made to the industry union to ‘acknowledge the special problems faced by women journalists’ but none were implemented".
