Katharine Viner on women in journalism

Julia talks to Katharine Viner, the the first female editor-in-chief at The Guardian and one of few women to have edited a national UK newspaper. In a recording made before the Covid pandemic hit, they discuss whether journalists have diversified beyond the “posh men in suits” who dominated when Kath first entered the profession, how the newsroom is adapting to new ways of working that benefit women and why violence against women and the planet are connected.
