Asia's newsrooms still lack female representation, journalists say

Women from around the region meet in Tokyo to discuss diversity in coverage

Female journalists from around Asia discuss the role of women in the industry during a Dec. 3 meeting in Tokyo.

TOKYO -- In early December, 30 female journalists from 12 countries and regions throughout Asia gathered in Tokyo for an event sponsored by Japan's Cabinet Office to discuss diversity in news coverage.

But women have long trailed men in terms of representation at media companies.
