NEFAC 30 Minute Skills: Protecting Women Journalists
Apr 28 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

This free program is brought to you by the New England First Amendment Coalition.

Throughout 2020, the Coalition for Women in Journalism identified 716 miscellaneous attacks worldwide on female reporters — more than double than the year prior. The first months of 2021 foreshadow another demanding year ahead. Women experience the kind of assault and harassment that rarely affects their male counterparts. These attacks are focused not on the reporting, but on the journalists themselves, including death and rape threats. With newsrooms often lacking effective support systems, women journalists are regularly belittled, have their professionalism questioned, and endure mistreatment strictly based on their gender.

By attending this class, you will learn:
How to secure your presence online and avoid attacks and trolling.
How to stay safe while covering riots and protests.
What can be done to prevent harassment (including mistreatment in the workplace) and what kind of support you should demand from your own newsroom.
