The New York Times on Tuesday announced that it has tapped a former Newsweek editor to be the paper’s first ever gender editor, Jessica Bennett.

"I felt like we had all this great coverage around the newsroom and around the world that I would categorize as gender, and I knew we weren't doing what we should be doing or could be doing to link up these different stories and different project on so many different beats that have this thing in common — and have this thing in common for readers, and help readers connect those dots, and create a little bit of a lens through which to engage with our report," NYT global editorial director Jodi Rudoren told Teen Vogue of the hire.

Bennett is the author of "Feminist Fight Club."

"To me, what gender issues means is not simply coverage of feminism or issues related to women's rights. Though of course that is important, and we're committed to approaching those issues and approaching them from an instersectional lens," Bennett told Teen Vogue.

"So whether that means stories about gender identity, or sexuality, or masculinity, or race and class and how that plays into gender identity, or simply the subjects that the Times already covers — politics, international affairs, science, health. But approaching these subjects through a lens of gender. We're thinking about this really holistically," Bennett told Teen Vogue.
