Inside The New York Times Gender Initiative

Francesca Donner, New York Times

In 2017, The New York Times launched the Gender Initiative to elevate and amplify its coverage of gender and engage women readers around the globe.

In its first few months, the Gender Initiative has focused on the sexual harassment scandals breaking across the world, including the stories that felled Harvey Weinstein and Bill O'Reilly, and launched the #MeToo Newsletter in response.

Francesca Donner, Director of the Gender Initiative, joined us on Wednesday 7 March in the Macmahon Ball Theatre to discuss gender dynamics in the media, reporting #MeToo and the future of journalism within a transforming media landscape.

It was hosted by Dr Gael Jennings from the Centre for Advancing Journalism
