Survey on violence against female journalists seeks participants [Worldwide]

News media workers, particularly women journalists, are invited to participate in the survey.

The International News Safety Institute (INSI) has launched a global survey on violence against women journalists in collaboration with UNESCO as part of promotion of the safety of journalists and the issue of impunity.

Attacks take the form of sexual assaults, rapes, cyber-bullying, emotional harassment and threats against loved ones. Many of these crimes are not reported because of powerful cultural and professional stigmas, said Hannah Storm, Director of INSI.

Women working in the news media are especially invited to participate in the survey, although men with information to add are also welcome. 

The survey can be accessed here.

The survey closes Sept. 20.
