This research project seeks to understand bye the eyes of women reporters how new technologies influence with production of news within the different newsrooms and platforms and, together with the project-mother "Women look at investigative journalism", seeks to analyzes the theme by the gender issue. It's a fact that technology has power over the newspaper industry, on the activity itself and even on journalists, whether by the innovations it brings, the demand for content that generates in society or adjustment difficulties (ANDERSON; BELL; SHIRKY, 2012) and in Brazil this environment is composed of 64% women, according to a survey by the Federal University of Santa Catarina in partnership with Fenaj (National Federation of Journalists) in 2013. An environment that, according to a preliminary study of this project's advisor, presents evidence of discrimination and prejudice by co-workers and sources. Because of that we believe in the relevance of this research, it will help us to check and study the role and importance of the female journalist in the post-industrial journalism, besides the peculiarities arising for being women reporters. The proposed study is qualitative, because we understand that is the best method of analysis, with use of the technique of semi-structured interviews, which will bring the vision of the characters inserted into the environment (GUERRA, 2006; NEVES, 1996). Will be interviewed five women reporters aged 21 to 50 years who work in print media (a newspaper or magazine), electronics (radio and TV) and digital (two of internet, being one of news portal and other of alternative media or independent), for analysis and comparison of the different environments of news production in which women are embedded.
