Introduction -- Where are the women? -- Beyond the glass ceiling -- A feminised news agenda -- Conclusions and recommendations.
"In this book, Suzanne Franks looks at the key issues surrounding female journalists--from on-screen sexism and ageism to the dangers facing female foreign correspondents reporting from war zones. She also analyses the way that the changing digital media have presented both challenges and opportunities for women working in journalism and considers this in an international perspective. In doing so, this book provides an overview of the ongoing imbalances faced by women in the media and looks at the key issues hindering gender equality in journalism."--Back cover.
