Linda Steiner studies how and when gender matters in news and newsrooms, and how feminists use media. Other research areas include media ethics, new and emerging forms of journalism, and journalism history, especially the periodicals published by women suffragists.

Current projects include co-editing a book about the problem of job precarity in journalism. Her most recent books, both co-edited, are “Front Pages, Front Lines: Media and the Fight for Women’s Suffrage,” and “Journalism, Gender and Power.”

Steiner has written, co-authored or edited 10 books, as well as many book chapters and refereed journal articles. She is a former president of the AEJMC and is currently editor of Journalism & Communication Monographs.
