It’s always wise to develop your networks and increase your knowledge, and in these uncertain economic times, it’s more important than ever. Women in Journalism was founded in 1994 with the aim of networking, campaigning and training – and that’s never been truer than today.  

Whatever stage of your career- whether you are a student, staffer or freelance-  you are assured a warm welcome at Women In Journalism.

Who is WIJ for?

WIJ is open to women journalists from national and regional newspapers, online media, magazines and wire services, as well as freelance journalists, photo-journalists, sub-editors and women in management positions within the industry.

Please see below for WIJ membership rates.


Our 600 members receive weekly emails from our administrator Kate McMillan, informing them of what’s coming up as well as many other events our members are invited to by other media related organisations.

Special offers and regular job opportunities are advertised through our email broadcast system and you will also have the ability to advertise through it as well (subject to suitability).

If you have any questions, please email
