Journalists pride themselves in revealing injustices and scrutinising power. But when it comes to gender equality in the media, there are still some major blind spots and problems. In its essence, journalism is a matter of choice. One story is chosen ahead of another. Often the news stories are about men. The lives and issues of women still have problems reaching the news, and the newsrooms in the Nordic countries are no exception. This Chapter gives an overview of the current situation.
