They enroll at a higher rate, graduate with more degrees, and yet still struggle to find their place in many career fields post-college.

Take a look and spread the word… Men and Women are Digitally Different.

Journalists have openly stated for decades that the opinion and authority of women has been greatly underappreciated in the media. We’ve agreed and even complained, but it became a lot easier this past month thanks to The Grindstone writer Meredith Lepore. She highlighted 4th Estate’s amazing new Infographic on the gender gap in the 2012 election coverage titling it perfectly “This Sad Graphic Shows You How Few Women Are Quoted On Women’s Issues.” Having collected data from a sampling of news stories from US national print outlets, TV broadcast and radio transcripts, 4th Estate contextually analyzed newsmakers comments in hopes of providing a greater insight into the election and women’s issues. The results, though not completely shocking, are important to share and hopefully force you to think more critically of our media.
“In our analysis of news stories and transcripts from the past 6 months, men are much more likely to be quoted on their subjective insight in newspapers and on television. This pattern holds true across all major news outlets, as well as on issues specifically concerning women. For example, in front page articles about the 2012 election that mention abortion or birth control, men are 4 to 7 times more likely to be cited than women. This gender gap undermines the media’s credibility.”
