Sara De Vuyst wrote a book about gender issues and technological innovation in journalism


Hacking Gender and Technology in Journalism 1st EditionHacking Gender and Technology in Journalism was published on February 11. This title features in the Routledge series Disruptions: Studies in Digital Journalism that focuses on publications which engage with cutting edge technological and critical developments and debates in contemporary digital journalism theory and practice. 

The book addresses the question of whether journalism’s new digital spaces suffer from the same gendered structures as traditional media organisations, or whether they go beyond such bias.

The different chapters offer insights into the challenges that women journalists face in relation to technological innovation, as well as the potential for developing strategies for empowerment that it offers. More specifically, there is a focus on the gendering of digital skills, the construction of gender in new digital spheres of journalism, and how these changes can lead to the disruption of gender inequalities in journalism.

This book will be of interest to scholars in multimedia journalism, media ethics, and gender studies and can also be used in academic courses on journalism, media and gender.
