In the wake of the #MeToo movement, many newsrooms invested in greater gender coverage — but not all those initiatives have lasted through the subsequent years of pandemic and economic crises. As the world faces a global backlash against the rights of women, gender-diverse and queer people, how prepared are newsrooms to cover issues such as the fall of Roe v Wade in the US, the anti-feminist government in South Korea, the ‘green wave’ of abortion rights in Latin America or the criminalisation of sex outside marriage in Indonesia?

Our panel will provide insights for their experience covering gender issues worldwide, and share exciting new findings from a global study of gender journalists.
