Female reporters in the workplace
I recently interviewed the editor of a local paper as part of the International Women's Media Foundation's Glass Ceiling study. He told me that working in the news business is not conducive to family life, neither for men nor for women. He also said his paper is not hiring any new staff at this time due to the economic climate. It remains difficult for women to work as newspaper reporters. Results of the study are expected next year.
