Extra! Extra! Read All About It: Media Coverage of Women in Canadian Politics
My name is Rachel Stephens, and I am a fourth-year Professional Communication student at Toronto Metropolitan University. I have a minor in public relations, which has allowed me to take many news studies classes. I was also able to connect with several journalists during my PR internship. Through these experiences, I have become very interested in journalism and how it influences the public. I am also a proud feminist, which is why I wanted to research how female politicians are reported on in the media compared to their male counterparts. Next year, I am excited to continue my education at the University of Toronto, where I will study Museum Studies.
