The Glass Cliff in the Newsroom

In this edition, we take a look at how the media is no exception when it comes to the precarious position of women in power. Also, the battle in Iran over the headscarf and an online campaign where women are defying religious authorities by abandoning their hijabs. And finally, how women teachers are becoming the backbone of Congo-Brazzaville.
