Literature has hitherto devoted little attention to the role and to the practices of women journalists working in online environments. While specific literature appears to be insufficient, a comprehensive conceptual framework can be built elaborating on both literature on gender and digital media, and on journalism studies adopting a gender perspective. Based on such a framework, the article illustrates the results of an exploratory research focusing on Italian online female journalists. Both similarities and differences between online journalism and «traditional» journalistic practices will be highlighted.
