The Status of Women in the U.S. Media 2014

Women's Media Center


This Women's Media Center annual report tracks how well the American media— ubiquitous shaper of images, ideologies and ideals—allow women to craft our own narrative and include our voices in a wide-ranging public discourse that's moderated over the airwaves, in print and online.

Indeed, we at the Center are acutely aware that we're far from the days when nary a female could be found in the film director's seat, when women journalists were relegated to the women's pages, when a woman was hard-pressed to get an entertainment media project green-lighted. Today's sure-enough strides show Shonda Rhimes breaking barriers in primetime TV; Jill Abramson helming the globally influential The New York Times, our national paper-of-record; and a small assortment of females-in-chief looming large in the digital sphere.


Still, the Center's new commissioned report on how women journalists fared during the last quarter of 2013 found that 64 percent of bylines and on-camera appearances went to men at the nation's top 20 TV networks, newspapers, online news sites and news wire services.


That reality, along with this report's analysis of findings by an array of university scholars, media and watchdog organizations who monitor newsrooms, film lots, broadcast studios, the digital sphere and more, brings us to what has been an ongoing, concerning conclusion: The American media have exceedingly more distance to travel on the road to gender-blind parity.
