From Outrage to Opportunity: How to Include the Missing Perspectives of Women of All Colors in

News Leadership and Coverage is the third report in the Missing Perspectives series, addressing the long-standing global scarcity of research into women's editorial underrepresentation, cultural exclusion and stereotypical portrayal in news. Described by the Guardian as "unprecedented analysis of newsrooms and news stories", the report contains the most extensive multi-method research ever conducted on why women are marginalized in news and how to change that.
