Two newsroom rules for reporting on women’s bodies

Slightly outside our beat but relevant to the topic of gender-sensitive reporting is this article on the Columbia Journalism Review by Kara Alaimo which offers two rules to journalists and news outlets:

  1. Don’t, unless it is news about fashion.
  2. If you are going to write about women’s bodies in all sorts of stories, do the same for men.

Take a look: Kara Alaimo, Newsrooms should follow two simple rules for reporting on women’s bodies, Columbia Journalism Review, March 14, 2017.
