Eliza Anyangwe

Managing Editor, CNN’s As Equals

A New Frontier of Gender Reporting

Gender inequality is a widespread societal issue that affects all kinds of women and takes many forms – from the wage gap to human rights violations and increased violence. In a male-dominated news industry, coverage about gender inequality still suffers from the rarity of dedicated journalistic platforms.

Listen to a conversation with CNN’s Eliza Anyangwe, Managing Editor of the award-winning global gender journalism project As Equals. As Equals tells the stories of the winners and losers of patriarchal societies – and in doing so, reveals what systemic gender inequality looks like and how journalism can help change it. With Eliza, we discussed the role that journalism plays in representing women’s voices, and how it helps deepen global understanding while producing tangible impact.
