Women are continuously underrepresented within the newsroom. Women represent less than 38% of the articles produced by major news orgs, which drops to 8% produced by women of color. Persistent attacks and harassment also keep women journalists out of the field; nearly one-third of early career female journalists consider leaving the profession due to gender-based targeting.
