The Association for Women Journalists-Chicago (AWJ-Chicago) and the Institute join in bringing four prominent Chicago women journalists together to discuss the results of a new study, "Where Women Stand: A Survey of Newsroom Staff in the Chicago Region."

The study, released by AWJ-Chicago and completed in partnership with Bradley University, was administered via online questionnaire and takes a hard look at Chicago-area women journalists' salaries, place in the newsroom, job satisfaction, and more.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
