Women Sport Journalists. A Global Assessment

Women in sports defy gender stereotypes and social norms, make inspiring role models, and show men and women as equals. Still, there are challenges concerning the practical side of equality and difference between men and women in sports, some financial, others cultural. The best equipped to observe and capture those shifts and their cultural context and societal implications are women journalists who have followed a similar professional trajectory, entering a field that has been historically dominated by men. Our webinar will capture, through the eyes of women journalists, from different parts of the world, the positive changes that have occurred, the challenges that remain, and what the future holds for women sports journalists as well as women athletes, coaches, and sports leaders, in a variety of contexts, geographic, political, and social.
