Monday was a whirlwind day at Mizzou — the Missouri Honor Medals, when the J-school recognizes people and organizations for distinguished service to journalism.

This year, we asked three of the medalists to join us for a panel about women in the media.

Led by Pulitzer Prize-winner Jacqui Banaszynski, the panel featured freelance reporter and author Barbara Ehrenreich, editor-in-chief of CNN Digital Meredith Artley and long-time New York Times copy editor Merrill Perlman.
