How Judy Woodruff of PBS Saw Politics Change: “Women’s Issues Are Everyone’s Issues”

From a story on by Jennifer Gerson headlined “How PBS’ Judy Woodruff saw politics change: ‘Women’s issues are everyone’s issues'”:

After nearly five decades on the air as a political reporter, Judy Woodruff, the anchor and managing editor of “PBS NewsHour,” will be stepping away from the anchor desk at the end of 2022. (She will continue to report for various projects for NewsHour and PBS.) Woodruff has been a fixture of political journalism, shaping what contemporary television coverage of American politics has looked and felt like for a generation while also being a literal face of women in journalism. In advance of receiving a Lifetime Achievement in Television News Award at the News and Documentary Emmy Awards on September 28, Woodruff spoke with The 19th about the ways in which she is thinking about gender, politics and journalism.
