43. Women Journalists Protecting Our Democracy

Finding Humanity

20-07-2022 • 25 mins

To protect democracy, we must first protect journalists. Yet, women journalists experience approximately three times as many abusive comments on Twitter, compared to their male counterparts. In this episode, we examine the disadvantages female journalists around the world face. We also explain why we must recognize online harassment against women journalists as a threat to the freedom of the press.

Featuring Carla Minet, Executive Director at the Center for Investigative Journalism in Puerto Rico and Elisa Lees Muñoz, Executive Director of the International Women's Media Foundation in conversation with Hazami Barmada, Activist & Founder of the Humanity Lab Foundation.
