Abstract:

This study examines the role of gender in the print media industry in Israel from a feminist perspective. The findings, based on a survey of 471 journalists and 47 in-depth interviews, demonstrate the gendered structure of Israeli journalism: (1) Despite the feminization process in the Israeli press, women remain a minority. Furthermore, the feminization trend has slowed down in recent years. (2) There is internal sex segregation (horizontally and vertically). (3) Surprisingly, most female journalists perceive the profession to be egalitarian. Moreover, many attribute whatever inequality they perceive to internal hurdles set up by women themselves.
This study raises the following questions: to what extent have women in the Israeli press gained occupational and economic equality, and how is this related to a world trend.
