Women in Journalism Since "The Good Girls Revolt"

46 minutes

Buoyed by the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s, women journalists started to hold the popular press accountable for its dissemination of demeaning gender stereotypes and directly challenged the conventions of the male-dominated news establishment. It’s a battle that continues to this day. Join Lynn Povich, author of the autobiographical The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace, in conversation with columnist Rebecca Traister, author of Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger, about the dynamic relationship between women’s activism and journalism over the past 50 years. Recorded Thursday, March 18, 2021
