In celebration of this year's International Women's Day and its theme #BreakTheBias, Telum Media joins the global community in highlighting the significant contributions and achievements of women all over the world as they continue to excel in various fields.

We spoke with Back End News Founder / Editor Marlet Salazar, GMA News Online's Janelle Kaela Malig, and Philippines-based Freelance Writer / Editor MM de Mesa about the long-standing challenges that hinder women empowerment in the media industry. Plus, we get their advice for aspiring female journalists and insights into how the media can be a better place for women journalists.
