Does Gender Determine Journalists’ Professional Views? A Reassessment Based on Cross-National Evidence

This paper presents results from a large-scale comparative survey into gender differences in journalists’ professional views in 18 diverse countries around the world. Results suggest that women and men do not differ in any meaningful ways in their role conceptions on neither the individual level, in newsrooms dominated by women,nor in socio-cultural contexts where women have achieved a certain level of empowerment.
