Women on the Rise

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

More Newsweek readers are going to be female. Why? Newsweek has hired their first female editor, Tina Brown.

Newsweek hopes to establish more popularity for female readers through this decision. Browns first issue also features a couple stories centered around females.

To attract female readers, Brown placed a popular female figure on the cover. Hilary Clinton stands proudly on the cover of Browns first issue.

Along with this first issue, the magazine will be hosting the second annual Women in the World Stories and Solutions summit. This is where female field leaders come together and speak to individuals about tyranny and cruelty.

Both of these activities are female related. By engaging women in the working environment, we can continue to build this side of involvement.

Since Brandweek is featuring their first female editor, it will encourage other women to set their mind on a goal and achieve it. Hopefully by this acceptance into the news industry, it will help men view women as working class individuals.

It's great they are getting a female editor but I think it's sad that it has taken them this long to have a female editor. Hope more companies will follow their lead.

It is fantastic that women are finally on the rise in the working field. It shouldn't have taken a female editor at Newsweek to have many female journalist working at the paper, but instead male editors should be looking for that female insight as well.
