CBC panel discusses absence of female bylines

CBC Radio One on Sunday ran two interesting segments about journalism. The first: Too Few Women in Publishing. “Pick up nearly any quality magazine, read the list of contributors and you will notice a dearth of women writers,” CBC writes. “Most of the articles will be written by men. Even though half the population is female and most major magazines have a substantial female presence on staff, the lack of bylines is startling. Why is this the case?”

In the second hour, CBC spoke with UK investigative journalist Brian Deer — the man who discovered the false claims behind the vaccine-autism link controversy.
