IFJ Survey: Violence against women media workers

28.11.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

Almost one in two women journalists have suffered sexual harassment, psychological abuse, online trolling and others forms of gender-based violence (GBV) while working according to a recent survey conducted by the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, on the 25th of November.

The survey monitored violence against women media workers and actions taken by unions and associations of journalists to prevent and eliminate gender-based violence.  In addition to these surveys, the IFJ launched a campaign to end violence against women and created a specific page for this purpose.
