According to research from WMC, women are outnumbered by men in the news industry — in television, newspapers, online and wires. The Women’s Media Center was co-founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem with the goal of making women and girls visible and powerful in media. By deciding who gets to talk, what shapes the debate, who writes, and what is important enough to be visible, the media shapes our understanding of who women are and what they can be.
