This book offers chapters on the dialectics of gender and newsroom culture, bringing a feminist analysis to that relation. The text aims to bring coherence and insight to a still relatively under-researched topic. The contributors come from a diverse range of geographies, approaches and contexts. Together, the chapters provide a timely intervention i the debates around gender and journalism, extending the analysis to produce a genuinely East-West, North-South set of analyses on this important topic.
