Women Writing Op-Eds

Today on Your Call: Why aren’t more women on the editorial page? And why does it matter?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about why women submit fewer op-eds than men and how it affects public discourse. Katie Orenstein, founder of the OpEd Project, laments that we’re hearing from only a small fraction of the world’s best minds. What keeps women from writing op-eds and taking part in our public discourse? Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here. Who are the female opinion writers you value --  and what do they offer? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Katie Orenstein, founder of the OpEd Project

Taryn Yaeger, graduate student intern with the OpEd Project
