Women journalists have impacted the reporting and editing of our nations news. What are the challenges they have faced? And what has changed in the roles, expectations, opportunities, and obstacles for women in American journalism? A panel of journalists and news executives will discuss what it took to succeed and the future challenges for women in journalism. The panel includes Cokie Roberts, political commentator for ABC News; Gwen Ifill, moderator and managing editor of Washington Week on PBS; Diane Rehm, host of the Diane Rehm Show on NPR; and Katharine Weymouth, publisher of The Washington Post and president and CEO of Washington Post Media; and Susan Tifft, professor emerita of Journalism and Public Policy at Duke University.
