Female journalists do not have much left to accomplish in the field of journalism. As we still have some differences between the sexes, female journalists still need the tribute they deserve. Today, women reporters are getting recognition based on their skills and not their looks. Their personalities are making an impact on the audience. They speak for the right cause and are able to deliver news better than their fellow male journalists. The media houses also recognize the contribution of women in journalism and provide equal opportunities to the new female journalists in every field of journalism.
