A case study of gender bias in science reporting


Gender disparities in science have attracted a lot of attention in the last decade or so, but the biases against women in media coverage of science haven’t received nearly as much focus. A recent study of Nature’s news and feature articles sheds light on how often women are quoted in science news. The study finds that women continue to be quoted less often than men in the high-profile journal, although the gap seems to be narrowing. The full article was published by Physics Today Magazine.
