I left journalism in 2010 after 30-plus years in a newsroom. I'd hoped that attitudes to female journalists would improve. Small steps would better than no steps.

Vivian Smith's studies show that few in the male-dominated, double-standard industry have even put on their shoes, much less tied them and started walking. Women are "outsiders still."

Outsiders Still is focused and reflective. Not ground-breaking, in my opinion, but certainly a worthwhile read. The circumstances of working in a newsroom as a woman are not at all surprising, but perhaps not always obvious. The book promotes an awareness of what kind of newsroom cultures are influencing what your news looks like.
