Twitter has come under fire from mainstream journalists and institutional gatekeepers, derided as "toxic" and a "poisonous well." But this opposition to Twitter—to its strengths as a democratizing platform—is as old as media itself.

Hard Evidence: is there still gender bias in journalism?

Hard Evidence: is there still gender bias in journalism? | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

"Journalism is changing, and so is the role of women in the workplace. But the two are not always evolving in harmony. Women substantially outnumber men in journalism training and enter the profession in (slightly) greater numbers, but still only a relative few rise to senior jobs. The pay gap between male and female journalists remains stubbornly wide, and older women - especially if they have taken a career break - find it difficult to retain a place in the industry.

 

Women in journalism still cluster around particular subject genres. Historically, they were almost totally confined to “pink ghettos”, but as more women entered the industry, there was an expectation that their opportunities would expand and that they would duly embrace areas that had been traditionally male, like hard news, crime or politics.

 

But a byline analysis of UK national newspapers in 2012 indicates that some areas still have very few women, in particular politics, sport and opinion writing. These findings are also supported by qualitative interview data. There are similar lacunae in the US press."

Bernadette Barker-Plummer's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:16 PM

Why are some 'beats' still inhospitable to women?  Clearly it is not the topics, women js are equally interested in politics, so maybe it is the practice of journalism in these arenas? Locker room based sourcing in sports? Boys drinking networks in politics? Byline analysis is the starting point, we need to figire out the 'why' also?

malek's curator insight, November 20, 2013 9:02 AM

The digital print skew the picture, given the lower pay to digital writers.

Sexed up and smart: Women debate Marissa Mayer's Vogue photo

Sexed up and smart: Women debate Marissa Mayer's Vogue photo | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

I didn’t think Marissa Mayer, the Yahoo! chief who caused quite a stir with her two-week maternity leave and decision to ban employees working from home, could get any more controversial.


Enter her decision to strike a pose in the September issue of Vogue magazine, lounging on a hammock wearing Michael Kors and stiletto heels, and let the debate, mostly among women, rage on.

LeftAction: Tell NBC & CNN: Don't Cave to Republican Hillary Threats | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Tell them not to cave. This really isn't rocket science: Hillary Clinton is an eminently newsworthy and compelling figure, and it's no surprise to anyone (well, except Priebus) that NBC and CNN would want to create programs around her story. Like they've done with a zillion other compelling figures. And given that the presidential election is over three years away, and Hillary Clinton isn't even a declared candidate, there's absolutely nothing inappropriate about doing this. Nothing. Nada. Zip

I don’t mean to sound sexist, but... | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

I don't mean to sound sexist, but as far as women have come over the last 40 years, you don’t really see a lot of women hunters. They’re still in the minority in the military, and there’s not a lot of female construction workers. I hope that’s not taken the wrong way. I think women are as smart, resourceful, and capable in most things as any man could be … but they are generally physically weaker. That’s science.

“—

Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comic series, in response to the question “Why are all the strong female characters either crazy or dead”

And now that you have this information, carry on however you wish to.

(via littleorphanammo)

sexism often goes unnoticed by the ones who have never been touched by it

(via elvira)

Fucking moron. My cousin weighs 100 pounds & she’s a bad ass super strong construction worker. And if your argument is that in reality women are physically weaker, maybe in your horror fantasy world you can overcome that belief because something else that doesn’t exist in reality are FUCKING ZOMBIES. God! IDIOT!
