Motherhood: Living It in Newsrooms, Covering It in the World – ONA19


Published on

Motherhood is too often dismissed as a fluffy topic for lifestyle pages, rather than one in dire need of serious reporting on its intersections with healthcare, economics, public policy, gender equity, and more. As newsrooms continue to look for more diverse stories that reflect our audiences, this session will serve as a bold call to arms on combating stereotypes and how to create more thoughtful coverage of a group that's often on the reporting margins. Relatedly, this talk will also cover why creating newsrooms that are more thoughtful about caregiving responsibilities benefits news coverage and all employees -- and how to go about doing it.

  13. 13. Hard hitting stories about mothers are also viral. Anti-Mom Bias is the belief that someone’s status as a mother has a negative impact on their professional abilities. Very similar to “The Maternal Wall,” the belief that someone cannot be a good mother and a good worker at the same time, resulting in an inability for a woman to advance in her career. ##ONA19Motherhood #ONA19 T: @Kgeee, I: @thedoubleshift
