From Serena Williams to Simone Biles to Katie Ledecky, the world is talking about female athletes—but what about the women who are writing about sports? What avenues are open to women interested in this brand of journalism—and will getting more women in the bylines reduce the rampant sexism in sports journalism? This panel brings together editors, freelancers, and staff writers from online and print publications to discuss their careers in covering sports: from breaking in as a freelancer, to cultivating relationships with editors, and supporting the work of other female journalists online.
