Letter: A thoughtful ‘Monitor’ response to feedback

Published: 4/14/2019 12:01:30 AM

Earlier this year I wrote a letter to the editor raising concerns regarding one column’s unbalanced coverage of men’s and women’s sports. I received a remarkable reaction from a number of people, especially moms and dads of area sports’ daughters. The response that was most notable though was the incredibly thoughtful and heartfelt note I received from the Concord Monitor sports editor. His words were meaningful, and while he and his team have historically had nice coverage of girls’/women’s sports, in recent weeks and months the coverage has been especially impressive. In my letter to the editor, I said that we all need to do better in the area of gender equity, myself included, and it’s nice to see in this era of incivility that we were listened to. It’s a lifelong journey for improvement, but it’s important to note when good effort is made. The Monitor has responded nicely to feedback.
