Women in the News – Cathy Newman

No pun intended, but Cathy Newman is really in the news, both as in journalist on Channel 4 News, and also, this week she’s making news herself, in the i newspaper.

One of the most recognisable faces on Channel 4 News, Newman joined the show in 2006, becoming their first female presenter in 2011. She brings in her own scoops as well as presenting them and has taken on the political establishment with investigations such as the sexual harassment allegations made against the Liberal Democrat peer Lord Rennard.(See this interview with  Bridget Harris) Unsurprisingly, she has experienced sexism first hand while working as a political correspondent, to the extent to being asked to wear ‘kinky boots’ to interviews!

You can read the i interview in full here.

Newsflash! Throughout the summer I have a limited number of coaching places available. More information here.
