Walter Cronkite School of Journalism Senior Associate Dean Kristin Grady Gilger and top media executive and high-ranking newspaper editor Julia Wallace discuss their crucial collaborative work, There's No Crying in Newsrooms: What Women Have Learned about What It Takes to Lead.

There's No Crying in Newsrooms tells the stories of remarkable women who broke through barrier after barrier at media organizations around the country over the past four decades. They started out as editorial assistants, fact checkers and news secretaries and ended up running multi-million-dollar news operations that determine a large part of what Americans read, view and think about the world. These women, who were calling in news stories while in labor and parking babies under their desks, never imagined that 40 years later young women entering the news business would face many of the same battles they did - only with far less willingness to put up and shut up. The female pioneers in "There's No Crying in Newsrooms" have many lessons to teach about what it takes to succeed in media or any other male-dominated organization, and their message is more important now than ever before.
