Women are continuously underrepresented in the newsroom. Women make up less than 37% of the articles produced by major news orgs, and only 8% are produced by women of color. In a key political year, only 34% of U.S. election coverage is generated by women – still, their coverage is often questioned, attacked, or distrusted. This hostile behavior keeps women journalists out of the field; according to the IWMF’s reporting, one in three early-career women journalists consider leaving the profession due to gender-based targeting.

Join us as we draw attention to this disparity and hold news organizations accountable. Let’s demand more stories from diverse voices and perspectives.
