in the field of journalism women make up 37% of newspaper employees, 40% of tv news workers, and less than 23% of radio newsroom employees. This shows that men are more common by more than 50%. Women in this field are discriminated by the men in past and as well as present times.

Back in the day, women were not allowed to step onto the field to conduct an interview with a player or coach. They were also not allowed to head into the pressbox to commentary a live game. Now a days, women are allowed to do all of those things, but it is very seldom that they do. That is still considered a mens place.

A lot of experts think that the gender equality situation in the sports journalism area is getting gradually worse. Many of the experts that were at a sit down meeting were in agreement that women are not offered or given advancements in sports journalism. One panelist, Anastasi, "believes there are more opportunities than ever for women broadcasters, writers, and sideline reporters, management opportunities for women have remained scarce." Overall women's jobs as sideline reporters have increased, but the major management position jobs have lessened because men have overtaken that role.

The International News Safety Institute issued a study and reported that "64 percent of female journalists around the world reported experiencing intimidation, threats, or abuse while working. 875 females were surveyed across the world. Their professions varied as journalists, editors, producers, and camera crew as well. "More than 82% were journalists and/or reporters. Also 50% or more were harassed by a co-worker or even a boss. Also a little bit below 50% of female asked about sexual harassment had confirmed they had been victims at one point or another of sexual assault while on the job. Credited reporter Hannah Storm had released a statement saying that this is a real issue and women are at risk all the time at their workplace.

It's Time For Sports Broadcasting To Stop Relegating Women to Sideline Eye Candy

Sports broadcaster Brent Musburger's recent comments over "smokin hot" women fans and sports reporters prompted an apology from ESPN and a segment on Huffington Post Live. Pioneering TV Sports reporter Anne Doyle, author of POWERING UP! How America's Women Achievers Become Leaders, says it's long past time to close the chapter on women sports reporters as sideline eye candy and open the broadcast booth to female commentators ready for prime time.

The amount women in sports media is increasing, but yet they are still left with only sideline reports. They are very short, straight to the point, reports. While on the other hand, their male co-workers are reporting for hours upon hours, compared to the females 5 minutes of fame.

Debating role of women in sports media, more | SI.com | Sports Journalism - Aspect 2&3 | Scoop.it
Two weeks ago Amy K. Nelson, an award-winning multi-media journalist and a friend, wrote a thoughtful piece for The Hairpin.com on how women in the sports media are systematically at a disadvantage. It prompted some important dialogue on the internet and social media, as did a post by CBS Sports Radio host Amy Lawrence on the verbal and sexual harassment she's experienced in the male-dominated world of sports radio. Both pieces struck a chord with me and prompted this column to reach out to six highly accomplished and respected women in the sports media for an email roundtable on the issues they deal with daily as women in the sports media.

A panel of women reporters/writers were asked several questions regarding the disadvantages they are facing in the field of sports media. Michelle Beadle believes that women are being judged for looks, but men do not have to worry about that. Andrea Kremer believes that discrimination is alive and well in sports media, saying "it's still easiest to be a white male."
Ashleigh Yanniruberto's comment, March 4, 2014 7:40 AM
Asked about play by play commentary, kremer said that women should receive a play by play commentary position if she has earned that. Vrentas thinks there is a huge barrier that needs to see be vanished, which is the discrimination of women in the play by play area of sports media. Most of it has to do with the media and how they portray the women or men, reasons why women have different privilege from the mean in sports media are still unknown, which is why sexual discrimination is so relevant at all times.

A lot of job markets have been capable of giving equal opportunities for men and women in the workplace, but sports broadcast is one field which has been struggling with that issue. There is academic work which found that "women are seen as less credible sports broadcasters in comparison to men." This study was done by Amanda Gunter, Daniel Kautz, and Alliston Roth.
Ashleigh Yanniruberto's comment, March 26, 2014 7:51 AM
Another study was conducted by Ordman and Zillamn which had a different perspective than the other one. It showed that "female sports reporters are perceived as less competent than their male colleagues, as well as less informed about sports generally and specfically." This could be because of women's social stereotypes that come along with women in this field. Men on television have a higher chance of getting a job and receive higher positions as females.
Ashleigh Yanniruberto's comment, March 26, 2014 7:59 AM
More researchers, Reid, Palomares, Anerson, and Bondad-Brown have found that "women will suffer the costs of negative stereotypes when gender is salient." This means that females will be "expected to conform" to this female stereotype, and "negatively evaluated when they are assertive because they will be perceived as conforming to the male stereotype."<br>

"Today, there appears to have been a steady erosion of the blatant sexism that plagued women into the 1990s. The benchmarks of progress most often mentioned include significant changes in the sports department culture over the years resulting in more opportunities for high-profile assignments and promotions. "

Not enough women have been offered management positions or positions higher up in this field because men are given the opportunity over them. They struggle with the stereotype that they have been given, and men can use that to their advantage to get higher up in the work place.

On COLLEGEGAMEDAY students and fans gathered around the espn booth that was set up for reporters before the game. Cheers echoed throughout the atmoshpere, "Sammi Sweetheart". They were referring to Sam Ponder the ESPN reporter who was at that time, on the job. They also said things like, "Give me your number," or "I'll take you out after the game." This is only one small example of the harassment female reporters face in sports media.

Another case is Ray Maualuga, who played for USC, went out of bounds and found himself next to ESPN reporter Erin Andrews. "He then proceeded to dance behind her without her knowing." He now plays for the Cincinnati Bengals and Erin Andrews is left to defend herself as a role of a noted sports reporter.

A reporter names Ines Sainz was harassed by New York Jets players and coaches in 2010. She was harassed in the locker room with inappropriate comments being made towards her. The coach of the team would also purposely throw passes toward her so the players "could be close to her." Nothing was done to the players or coaches of the Jets.

Karen Thomson was interviewing Duncan Keith, a hockey player for at the time the Chicago Blackhawks, and asked about a certain play that was made during the game. He proceeded to make small jabs toward the reporter saying "you can't play but you're thinking the game like you know it?" This is a small jab but nonetheless harassment from another player. She said she has "moved on" from it and is willing to brush it off because things get said in the "heat of the moment."

Lastly is Lisa Olson. She was reporter for the New England Patriots in 1990 in the locker room. Naked players gathered around her and make inappropriate gesture and said inappropriate things. "She described it has premeditated mind rape." Of course the patriots said that they should have never hired a female reporter to come into the locker room. Meanwhile Olson was filing a lawsuit against them. Eventually she was moved to Australia by her company because the case could not be solved.
