Female in Journalism
Female in Journalism



In general journalism is considered a very male-domanted career especially  in Cambodia. The released data from the Ministry of Information showed the number of male journalists is far greater than the number of female journalists. In various publicly released researches found that female journalists faced more challenges and obstacles than their male counterparts while doing their jobs. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to get more discussion on this issue and at the same time also to explore all the positive sides of being a journalist in order to encourage more Cambodian females to be interested in pursuing a career in journalism.
