What is gender pay gap reporting, and what does it mean? | Society | The Guardian
What’s the difference between the mean and the median figures?
When talking about the gender pay gap people tend to talk about the median figure rather than the mean. The mean is calculated by adding up all of the wages of employees in a company and dividing that figure by the number of employees. This means the final figure can be skewed by a small number of highly paid individuals. The median is the number that falls in the middle of a range when everyone’s wages are lined up from smallest to largest and is more representative when there is a lot of variation in pay.

What do we want? Unbiased reporting! When do we want it? During protests! » Nieman Journalism Lab
Stories about women’s marches and anti-Trump protests give more voice to the protesters than those about Black Lives Matter and other anti-racism protests.

On tight deadlines, reporters may default to official sources for statements and data. This gives authorities more control of narrative framing. This practice especially becomes an issue for movements like Black Lives Matter that are countering the claims of police and other officials.

Beyond Nightingale: Being a Woman in Data Visualization
If her presence in these lists was really about including historically important visualizations, we would see those same lists and books and classes include many more female visualizers throughout history. Who, you ask? Take Emma Willard, a pioneering educator who revamped the way geography was taught by designing her own set of more accurate and contextual maps. While typical geography curricula used maps that focused on the thirteen original US colonies, thereby starting the discussion at the American Revolutionary War, Willard drew maps based on Native American territories (though they would likely be disputed by Native Americans) to focus the conversation on what was happening on the land before the invasion. They would also include Florence Kelley, Annie Maunder, Marie Neurath, and Mary Eleanor Spear— just to name a few. Stay tuned for more profiles on these women to come soon in Nightingale and in the meantime, look up the work of Catherine D’Ignazio & Lauren Klein.

Online fashion twice as ‘racy’ as High Street - BBC News
Google's software scores images from one to five in terms of how likely they are to be, what they call, "racy".

It is part of their "Safe Search" tool, which detects adult, spoof, medical, violent and "racy" images.

The BBC's analysis only counted images with a score of four ('likely racy') or five ('very likely racy') as "racy". For comparison, the average picture in lads magazine FHM's "100 Sexiest Women" 2005 edition had a "racy" score of four.

While having more underwear or swimwear on a site will affect the score, the score is also influenced by the way in which the clothing is modelled.

The Making Of HuffPost's Most Successful Trump Story | HuffPost UK
Ultimately, the age of distributed content means that most readers will see multiple outlets cover breaking news events in the same way. However, by showing a different side of the story and using pointed language along with an eye-catching visual to stand out on social, we were able to make a mark not only on that day’s page views, but also in the wider conversation.

TL;DR: Seize those moments that can set your brand and coverage apart. It’s worth it.

“Progress … Slowly, but Surely”: The Sports Media Workplace, Gay Sports Journalists, and LGBT Media Representation in Sport: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
Sport has become an increasingly liberal environment for sexual minorities. This has resulted in an increase of LGBT athletes (especially gay male athletes) coming out of the closet, and being positively framed by sports media. Little is known, however, about how these shifts impact gay men in sports media. Through 12 semi-structured interviews, this article is the first empirical examination of openly gay male sports journalists’ experiences in the sports media workplace. Adopting inclusive masculinity theory (IMT), results indicate that, despite the continued presence of heterosexism, all participants were “out” to colleagues, and almost all were unconditionally accepted when doing so. Additionally, findings indicate a nuanced perspective that contrasts with the oft-sensationalist reporting of LGBT issues by sports media. This article therefore extends the current body of IMT research on improved attitudes toward sexual minorities in sports media.

Revealed: the $730,000 gender pay gap in US World Cup bonuses | Football | The Guardian
*Note the radius vs area issue in the circles*

These figures come from a Guardian analysis of World Cup bonuses offered by US Soccer in the collective bargaining agreements for the women’s and men’s national teams. The USWNT’s current CBA, signed in 2017, is not public and has been obtained by the Guardian, although some details were released in a book about the USWNT this year. The bonuses from the men’s CBA, which expired last year but remains in effect during negotiations, were released in legal filings.

No male editor has ever accepted my pitches on abortion - Columbia Journalism Review
Pitching my Missouri article was not such a smooth experience. As a legal and electoral story, it belonged in an outlet that primarily covers politics and culture. I pitched The New Republic, for example, and waited roughly a month for an initial response. Then I was told by an apologetic male editor that they could only offer a short news dispatch, not the feature I had proposed, which was based on multiple trips to Missouri that were funded by an investigative reporting grant. He implied that he had run the story by another male editor, who was not persuaded. I rewrote the pitch, adding new details about the 22 pieces of anti-abortion legislation moving through the state legislature and the radical tenor of the conversation in the capitol, and after another month they said again that they were only interested in the short news dispatch (which wouldn’t have provided space for months-worth of original reporting). I then pitched the story elsewhere a few more times with no success, until a female editor at Fusion (now Splinter) accepted. She responded within 36 hours of receiving my email, made prescient edits, and ran the story a couple weeks before the election.

A new book says married women are miserable. Don’t believe it. - Vox
The problem? That finding is the result of a grievous misunderstanding on Dolan’s part of how the American Time Use Survey works. The people conducting the survey didn’t ask married people how happy they were, shoo their spouses out of the room, and then ask again. Dolan had misinterpreted one of the categories in the survey, “spouse absent,” which refers to married people whose partner is no longer living in their household, as meaning the spouse stepped out of the room.

Muslim women call for more equality in running UK mosques | UK news | The Guardian
The organisation said: “It is unfortunate that many mosques fail to provide basic access for Muslim women to use the facility to pray or the quality of the space can often be inadequate and not suitable. It is also unfortunate that many mosques have limited or no women present at mosque trustee or managerial level, either intentionally preventing women from taking up these roles or not sufficiently providing a welcoming atmosphere where women feel comfortable to get involved.”

Methodology | Pew Research Center
The list of minority celebrities focused on famous black and Asian individuals. The list of famous blacks includes 22 individuals: 11 men and 11 women. The list of famous Asians includes 30 individuals: 15 men and 15 women. Researchers then compiled a list of the most populous 100 countries and downloaded up to 100 images of men and women for each nation-gender combination, respectively (for example, “French man”). This choice helped ensure that the training data included images that feature people from a diverse set of countries, balancing out the overrepresentation of white people in the training dataset. Finally, researchers supplemented this list with a set of 21 celebrity seniors (11 men and 10 women) to help improve model accuracy on older individuals. This allowed researchers to easily build up a demographically diverse dataset of faces with known gender and racial profiles.

Game of Thrones: How much do women speak in the show? - BBC News
The data was compiled by Ceretai, a Swedish start-up that uses machine learning to analyse diversity in popular culture.

Their algorithm has learned to identify the difference between male and female voices in video and provides the speaking time lengths in seconds and percentages per gender.

Like most automatic systems, it doesn't make the right decision every time. The accuracy of this algorithm is about 85%, so figures could be slightly higher or lower than reported - but the data suggests that speaking times for men and women in the programme are far from being equal.

There's No Crying in Newsrooms: What Women Have Learned about What It Takes to Lead: Kristin Grady Gilger, Julia Wallace, Campbell Brown: 9781538121498: Books
There’s No Crying in Newsrooms tells the stories of remarkable women who broke through barrier after barrier at media organizations around the country over the past four decades. They started out as editorial assistants, fact checkers and news secretaries and ended up running multi-million-dollar news operations that determine a large part of what Americans read, view and think about the world. These women, who were calling in news stories while in labor and parking babies under their desks, never imagined that 40 years later young women entering the news business would face many of the same battles they did – only with far less willingness to put up and shut up.

The Times Newspaper Is Being Sued For Anti-Trans Discrimination By A Former Editor
Should O’Donnell be successful, therefore, it would mean that a newsroom’s output could be deemed an internal, employment issue, too. News outlets may in the future have to consider how their coverage of trans people and other minority groups could be in breach of employment laws that protect members of these communities on their own staff from discrimination and bullying.

She claims that there was an atmosphere at the Times hostile to trans people in general and therefore also to her.

Mind the respect gap | language: a feminist guide
There’s a woman I know who does a lot of broadcast interviews, because she’s an expert on something that’s often in the news. And she’s noticed something annoying: the interviewers she talks to—not all of them, but quite a few—are in the habit of addressing her with just her first name, whereas the male experts on the same programme are typically given an academic title. ‘Thank you, Dr Jones. Now Sarah, if I could turn to you…’.  ‘I’m not usually precious about titles’, she says, ‘but I’ve got a Ph.D too’.

De-biasing language - O'Reilly Media
We’re uncovering biases that are basic to our use of language. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that these biases are built in to the way we communicate, and that they go fairly deep. We can remove gender as a factor in word embeddings, but that doesn’t help much. Turkish, for example, doesn’t have gendered pronouns, a fact that has revealed gender bias in automated translation, where gender-neutral Turkish sentences are translated as gender-specific English sentences. But no one would claim that gender bias doesn’t exist in Turkish; it’s just encoded differently. Likewise, we can remove race and ethnicity as a factor in word embeddings, but that, at best, leaves us with a smaller problem. Language is only a symptom of bigger issues. These biases are part of what we are, and these word associations, including the associations we’d prefer to disown, are part of what makes language work.

Fantasy, Pragmatism and Journalistic Socialisation: UK Journalism Students’ Aspirations and Motivations: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
Despite the sustained growth in journalism as a choice of degree path for young people, our understanding of students’ aspirations and motivations remains relatively underdeveloped. At the same time, journalism careers appear increasingly uncertain, as the industry responds to digitalisation and convergence. In this mixed-methods study – employing 35 interviews and a survey of 837 UK journalism students – we ask what areas of journalism do students aspire towards, how do they feel about their future career prospects, and what is motivating them to study journalism in the first place? We find that intrinsic motivations (calling and talent, dynamic job) prevail over public service ones, with students drawn to soft news beats over hard news. Aspirations are also strikingly gendered, opening up questions of journalism education in this process. We also find that while students articulate an aspirational career in respected media outlets, they are pragmatic about their immediate career prospects. Here, journalism education appears to play a significant role in socialising students towards careers beyond journalism. Findings are discussed in the light of ongoing debates around journalistic socialisation and the future of journalism.

Take a look at the gender imbalances of the world's leading orchestras — Quartz at Work
Quartz at Work examined the instruments played by the musicians of the world’s 20 greatest orchestras, as ranked by the UK’s Gramophone magazine, to understand how gender shapes their composition. Where we could, we looked at the individual musician pages to determine each musician’s gender, and excluded one orchestra that didn’t list individual musicians: The Saito Kinen Orchestra in Japan. When musicians didn’t have their own pages, we searched for their images. If only had their name, we determined if the name was more likely male of female. (We weren’t able to account for non-binary gendered people.)

Why are some women “news avoiders”? New research suggests one reason has to do with emotional labor » Nieman Journalism Lab
interviews with lower- and middle-income women in the U.K., professors Benjamin Toff and Ruth Palmer found a “clear division of labor” that “helped sustain gender gaps in news use.”
News consumption fell off the to-do list completely as the women juggled jobs and childcare. They often outsourced news consumption to male partners or family members. And they “tried to conserve their own emotional energy” by avoiding news— in order to better “fulfill their responsibilities to others.”

If you let commenters go after your reporters, it hurts your credibility with other readers » Nieman Journalism Lab
We found a significant effect for the abusive comment on author credibility and intention to seek news from the author and outlet in the future, but gender of the author did not moderate these effects. To ensure the null effects for gender were not an artifact of comment or topic, we fielded two additional survey experiments. Across topics, whether the abuse was gendered or gender-specific, we found abusive comments exert significant negative effects on evaluations, regardless of author gender. Our results have implications for news organizations considering comments.

Explaining the Gender Gap in News Avoidance: “News-Is-for-Men” Perceptions and the Burdens of Caretaking: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
Even in wealthy post-industrial countries where equity between men and women has improved in recent years, women are still significantly more likely than men to say they avoid the news, a gender gap that has important implications for political participation. This article employs a qualitative, inductive approach to examine the how and why behind the gender gap in news consumption. Using in-depth interviews with 43 working- and middle-class individuals in the United Kingdom who say they rarely or never access conventional news sources, we find that decisions around when and whether to engage with news are (1) often viewed through a gendered lens, which we call “news-is-for-men” perceptions, and (2) subject to structural inequalities that shape people's everyday media consumption habits. These include both gender-based divisions of labor in the consumption of news within households and the physical and emotional burdens of caretaking responsibilities, which fall predominantly on women and can interfere with staying up-to-date with news. We argue that efforts to close the gender gap that fail to address both of these entrenched underlying causes are unlikely to succeed.
