Study on Women Journalists in Europe

The researchers, who looked at reporters’ bylines and the images accompanying stories, found that in nearly every country, across both print and digital, men wrote most of the content in the news, business, and comment sections. Across all 11 countries, men wrote 41% of the stories, compared to just 23% written by women, while almost half of all the pictures (43%) that were published were just of men, compared to just 15% featuring only women. The balance was made up of un-bylined /agency articles.
