Gender Journo News


More good news from the nation’s capital. In an historic first, the chief White House correspondents from ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN are all women. And they will be working with an all-female communications team at the White House — what Axios describes as the the first time in history such a dynamic has existed.

This news comes on the heels of other exciting progress for gender equity in journalism in Washington, D.C. that Post Alley shared earlier.

In Washington State we are less likely to hear from women covering Olympia. According to the TVW Legislative News Media List, there are 19 male TV and radio correspondents compared to seven female. Going through the list for newspapers, there are 43 men and 25 women.
