MAY 3 – MAY 30, 2021: Free Online Course - How to Report Safely: Strategies for Women Journalists

A free online course, "How to report safely: Strategies for women journalists and their allies," https://journalismcourses.org/course/how-to-report-safely-a-guide-for-women-journalists-their-allies/ will be held from May 3 to May 30, 2021. Just last year, a report from the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) and TrollBusters showed that 70% of women journalists have been harassed, threatened or attacked. That global survey also discovered that one-third of female journalists considered leaving journalism because of online attacks and threats. Furing this online course, you will learn frameworks for mitigating and managing associated risks for all women (cis, trans and femmes) and their allies.
