Call for chapters: “Women in the Media: Who Creates the News?”. Deadline: Jan 15, 2018.

Moreover, some research studies show that women traditionally occupy so called “feminine” area such as health, but when those areas move to the news and become part of the news agenda then women get pushed out and men take over what used to be a feminine area. Therefore, this book wants to examine the position and experience of women in the media in both respects, i.e 1) whether they are now experiencing the privilege of writing in the most important and most popular sections such as news, or are they still regulated to the place of women: health, lifestyle and food, and 2) whether they are used as sources by journalists and if so in which areas. Thus, news is understood as a product not just created by a journalist (be it male or female) but also as a product created by its sources due to journalistic dependence on sources (be it male or female) that are sometimes driving the coverage of the media.
