Jill Abramson, the first woman executive editor of the New York Times, says that "The idea that women journalists bring a different taste in stories or sensibility isn't true." But some newspaper veterans disagree. For instance, Ann Marie Lipinski, who in 2001 became the first female editor of the Chicago Tribune, says, "Do I think gender plays a role in that case? I suspect at times it does. Being a woman gives you access to some experiences in life that men don't have, just as the reverse is true."
