An Interculturalist’s Perspective on Ways to Success in American Culture
The United States is emerging from the COVID-19 Pandemic a deeply fractious society. We seem to be recovering economically, but very unevenly. Politically we are often contentious and disappointed.

No one discipline or perspective can do justice to the complexity we are experiencing in the US at this time.

They occupy high positions in business, politics, science, art and other fields. There are many moments in American history when journalists covered issues related to gender inequality, violence and discrimination. From simple misogyny to opening up new opportunities for women in professional journalism.
This question is undoubtedly an important element of the path to success and development in American culture. How exactly does journalism bring about successful changes in American culture, revealing the concept of “woman” as an independent and self-sufficient person? In my report we will look at how journalists in different periods of history used their positions to fight for women’s rights. Specific examples of the work of journalists will be considered. Contemporary challenges related to gender inequality and the role of journalism in combating them will also be discussed. Continue reading
