“women are the only oppressed group in our society that lives in intimate association with their oppressors.” in our final post #blackhistorymonth post, there's no better person to highlight then evelyn cunningham. from her early coverage of the civil rights, she clearly called it like she saw it. this #badassfemalejourno showed steadfast commitment to #journalism, #civilrights, #womensrights, and more.

It matters who reports the news. journos like @adr1600 have paved the way, even as attacks against the press have risen. diverse voices present diverse perspectives, as april d. ryan does every day from the white house.
everyday, let’s #sharehernews and support #pressfreedom. .

Meet the first black women reporter at the @washingtonpost. now a certified trailblazer, dorothy butler gilliam famously stated: “don't be afraid of the african american voice, be an ally. racial equality, diversity and inclusion benefit you." more diverse representation is still needed in leadership and all levels of the media industry. dorothy butler gilliam, a pioneer and trailblazer, continues to push for that change to this day. join her and #sharehernews this #blackhistorymonth! .

"race and s*x were twin strikes against me. i'm not sure which was the hardest to break down." telling words from groundbreaking journo alice dunnigan. ⁣

she overcame incredible odds to distinguish herself to cover the white house, report the news, and advocate for #civilrights. today, many obstacles still remain for many women of color in today’s industry. ⁣

#sharehernews and call for policies that give black women equal access to media.⁣

Fearless. meet ethel payne. this ‘first lady of the black press’ covered underreported topics like #segregation in the us army, the struggles of u***d mothers, and the #montgomerybusboycott.
let’s #sharehernews and support women like ethel payne who report despite backlash at even the highest levels of government. .

“the people must know before they can act, and there is no educator to compare with the press.” this quote is from iconic ida b. wells.
her investigative #journalism called out racism and bigotry in the us. despite attempts to silence her, she continued to raise her voice. we must continue to elevate diverse voices that expose injustices and call for change. #sharehernews for #blackhistorymonth and beyond. .

“diversity is essential to the success of the news industry, and journalists must include diverse voices in their coverage in order to reach a broader audience.” gwen broke down barriers and left a mark in more than one way, but most notably by being one half of the first all female co-anchor team w/ judy woodruff.
news orgs should continue gwen’s legacy and place more women in news leaders roles to #sharehernews. .
