USA: Byline report: Who writes the news online?

The Gender Report: A closer look at gender and online news

Posted by Jasmine Linabary  January 18, 2013

"Research has long demonstrated a gender gap in who writes and produces the news, but less is known about how and if that gap has materialized online. The goal of our Byline Report project has been to take a look at how this plays out at online-only news websites.

This six-month project examined the gender breakdown of bylines at six online news websites weekly based on the sites’ RSS feeds".

Advancing gender equality in media

In my opinion, the most effective strategy to achieve gender-sensitive media is:

Increased gender-awareness training of media professionals
Greater action by audiences to hold their media accountable
Stricter enforcement of gender-focussed media codes and policies
More female journalists, editors and media house managers
