One of the main questions regarding the feminization process in journalism, as in
other professions, is what is the connection between the participation of women in the
news production process and the journalistic text?

Based on the findings of this
study, it is necessary to pay attention to the organizational context within which
women journalists work, or their place within the power structure of newsrooms. The
findings confirm the complexity of the question. The fact is that women are still a
minority in the field, that they experience a subjective feeling of “otherness”, and
especially that their lower status can hinder and even prevent women journalists from
expressing themselves in such a way that as to contradict the dominant values of their
occupational environment. The effort to survive in the profession is demanding and
makes it difficult for them to express a female voice of protest in their writing.
Therefore, when such expressions do appear they are subtle and covert.
