Threats, misogynistic and racist abuse, online trolling, physical assault, imprisonment, rape and the ultimate sanction – murder. That is what many women journalists across the world endure from those who try to silence them in their fight to expose the truth. Last year, the UN catalogued “the “chilling tide of abuse” inflicted on female journalists in order to silence them.
For the past year, Women in Journalism has been talking to brave journalists across the world and to the colleagues and friends of those who are in jail. These shocking profiles can be found here https://womeninjournalism.co.uk/journalists-under-threat/
We will gather together some of these extraordinary women to tell their stories, of how bigotry and misogyny has been weaponised to undermine their reporting and destroy their careers – and how they fought to get the facts to their audiences.
