Ms. Quote: Why Are Women Missing From the News?
6:30 - 8 p.m.
$5 for NPC members (login for code); $10 public

What are we missing when our reporting doesn’t adequately include women experts and women subjects? Why should we care and how can we increase women's voices in the news?

On Monday, Jan. 13, a panel at the National Press Club will explore these issues and strategies for change. Panelists include Matt Winkler, editor-in-chief Bloomberg News, Sally Buzbee, AP Washington bureau chief, Ken Strickland, NBC Washington bureau chief, Ruth Marcus, Washington Post op-ed columnist, Anna Palmer, Politico senior Washington correspondent, and Jill Zuckman, managing director SKDKnickerbocker. Linda Kramer Jenning, Georgetown University journalism instructor and Washington editor of Glamour, will moderate the panel.

An analysis earlier this year of front-page stories in the New York Times found that reporters quoted three times as many male sources as female sources. At the same time, journalists complain that they approach women experts who decline to be interviewed. Other studies show a lack of female representation from news talk shows to op-ed pages, and the Global Media Monitoring Project continues to find that women are underrepresented around the world in news coverage compared to men.

Come engage in the debate on Jan. 13 from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.. Questions are welcomed in advance by emailing
