Women in journalism: Reading list 7/1/2012

The Gender Report provides a weekly round-up of links to online articles that may be of interest to our readers. The links below are to noteworthy articles on topics related to women in journalism and the media during the past week.

Sexual assault

A female journalist wrote of being sexually assaulted in Egypt’s Tahrir Square in a blog post this week. Natasha Smith, a British journalist and student, reported that she had been assaulted by a mob during celebrations marking the announcement of the results of Egypt’s presidential election. Her post quickly garnered attention across the web, and many drew parallels to a very similar attack on CBS correspondent Lara Logan more than a year ago. Read Smith’s post along with related reports below:

Where are the women?

Newsweek/Daily Beast released a “Digital Power Index” this week in which women were only seven out of 100 honorees. Just the week before Foreign Policy offered up a Twitterati 100 list that was nearly 90 percent male (sparking the compilation of FPwomerati – 100 women to follow included in last week’s reading list). Here are some of the responses to the lack of women on these “top” lists:
