Help A Journalism Student – What Women’s Issues Would You Like Covered?
I received an email from a journalism student/school newspaper reporter from Syracuse University, asking about topics relevant to women that should be receiving wider coverage. Although many of you might not end up reading this student’s work, it’s still a good opportunity to influence coverage of women’s issues. Please make your suggestions in the comments.
1. What issues do you think should be covered that are female centric that are not being covered in the media at the moment?
2. What deserves further investigation?
3. Do you know of any events worthy of note pertaining to woman that are occurring on university campuses?
4. What type of story would you like to see covered?
You don’t have to answer all these questions, but I was hoping you can provide me with some direction or any tidbits regarding woman that deserve further investigation.
I suggested the increase in birth control prices on campus as one possibility – it’s been covered in a general way by large media outlets, but a local angle might be interesting. Keep in mind that your answers don’t have to be health-related. Any other suggestions?
