"A news story should be like a mini skirt on a pretty woman. Long enough to cover the subject but short enough to be interesting." – Anonymous
Journalism is a highly competitive field, traditionally dominated by men. My name is Kelly Dickey and I am an inquisitive college student trying to make it as a reporter.
Entering the professional workforce for the first time, this blog is from the perspective of a twenty-something female newbie. Because of that, Mini Skirt Journalism aims to examine the status of women in journalism, how the industry is changing and my personal journey.
