"Women and Journalism offers a comprehensive analysis of the roles, status and experiences of women journalists in the United States and Britain. Drawing on a variety of sources, the authors investigate the challenges women have faced in their struggles to become established in the profession from the mid-19th century onward. With a particular focus on news journalism, the book provides an account of the gendered structuring of journalism in print, radio and television and speculates about women's role in the new sector of online journalism.

The authors argue that a gendered organization of newsroom cultures means that women are marginal in fields of "serious news" reporting
