“Where Are the Women?” Anna Griffin Asks Journalism

“You can’t just wait for the end when you have an opening for editor and say, ‘We need to find a woman,’ ” says Anders Gyllenhaal, vice president for news at McClatchy. “You have to be thinking about this when you choose your next metro editor, when you choose your political writer, when you pick your columnist. You have to be thinking about it when you go to college campuses and look for summer interns.”

“Where Are the Women?” asks Anna Griffin over at Neiman Reports.  While much of what Griffin uncovers shows us that diversity in journalism has stalled for the last few decades (and not just for women), she also found evidence that the women who do make it to management roles in journalism are getting less shy about pushing diversity in the newsroom.
