5 Journalists To Follow On Twitter: Gender Equality Edition

Women and minority groups can face significant challenges when pursuing careers in technology, science, and engineering. Sexism is still an all-too-common part of so many industries and women must contend with a unique set of challenges to further their careers. Luckily, increasing numbers of reporters are committed to ensuring an egalitarian working environment for women of all backgrounds.

Moreover, it’s crucial to give the female movers and shakers of the journalism industry the credit they deserve and not to overlook their many accomplishments. However, it can be a challenge to figure out who the most trustworthy authorities are on the topic of gender equality, especially in a fast-moving field like journalism.
