This study aims to identify the circumstances for women journalists in Jordan’s print, online, TV and radio media. It focuses specifically on violations and gender-based discrimination in the work place and harassment outside office. The study also surveyed trust in complaints systems and examined women journalists̕ self-evaluation of how gender impacts their career development and how satisfied they are with their job as journalists. The study concluded that women face hindrances driven by gender-based discrimination that have limited their number and restricted their prospects of professional development. Less than 23% in Jordanian media are women and leadership positions are heavily dominated by men.
