IFJ Launches Global Campaign to End violence against Women Journalists

International Federation of Journalists (IFJ)

 

Extract from the article

 

Tragically, women journalists are under bigger threat than their male colleagues when it comes to attacks, bullying, threats, cyber-bullying, rape and abuse; all effective tools to silence women's voices in the media. As we encourage more and more women into the profession, their safety must be paramount," said IFJ Gender Council co-chair Mindy Ran.

 

According to the IFJ, six women journalists were killed this year in the course of their profession. Rebecca Davidson, a New Zealand national, deputy head of programming at the Dubai-based Arabian Radio Network was killed on 8 February  in a boat collision while on assignment in the Seychelles.  Journalist Rahmo Abdulkadir working for Radio Abudwaq was shot in Towfiq district in north Mogadishu, Somalia capital, when she was close to her house. Baiu Lu, from the Urumqi Evening News died on 18  April,  in an accident while conducting interviews on a construction site in

Urumqi, capital of Northwest China. Habiba Ahmet Abd Elaziz from UAE-based Xpress newspaper was killed on 14  August together with four other journalists in Egypt. Yarra Abbas, television correspondent for Al-Ikhbariyah TVwas killed on 27  May, while covering clashes near the border with Lebanon. French reporter Ghislaine Dupont, who worked for Radio France International (RFI) was  abducted and shot dead on 2nd November  together with her male colleague Claude Verlon in the Malian northern city of Kidal.
