There's No Crying in Newsrooms: A Conversation With Author Kristin Gilger

January 30, 2020 | 6:00 pm CST | Journalism Building 

The female experience in media has long been an uphill battle. In their book, There’s No Crying in Newsrooms, authors Kristin Grady Gilger and Julia Wallace tell the stories of women who broke through a multitude of barriers at media organizations around the country over the last four decades. As we enter a new era of young women in media that are much less willing to put up and shut up, the female pioneers in the book share the many lessons about what it takes to succeed in media or any other male-dominated organization. Join the LSU Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs on January 30, 2020 to hear from author Kristin Grady Gilger about the inspiration for the book and why its message is so relevant to young women today.
