"All the News That's Fit to Print"?
Content analysis is performed on a random sample of 224 New York
Times editions, from 1966 to 1994, to see if the increasing
number of women in the newsroom correlates with increased
coverage of women on Times' pages. The data show a significant
increase (at alpha level of .05) in women's bylines, pictures and
references, but not obituaries, letters to the editor or op-ed
pieces. There also is significant evidence that women write
about women more than men do, but that men increasingly write
about women when more of their newsroom colleagues are women.
