Female Journalists in New Media; experiences, challenges and a gendered approach

This report aims to understand how gendered, online harassment of female journalists translates in the physical world. Instead of using quantitative data, the report takes a qualitative approach to understand the issues that female journalists face in the news media. These issues include trivialization of gendered issues by male editors and colleagues; lack of support or validation for harassment by media houses; callous attitudes that reinforce tha notion that if women cannot handle the ‘heat’, they should not be on social media;  and lastly women are excluded fro mPress Clubs across Pakistan because of their gender.
