First Quarterly Report

This report presents an image of the threats that women journalists around the world faced between January to April 2021. The Coalition For Women In Journalism documented cases where women journalists have been found vulnerable to various threats as a result of their work. In the first four months of 2021, women journalists were murdered, arrested, faced legal persecution, verbally harassed, abused and threatened online, as well as physically harassed, attacked and assaulted while working in precarious conditions. CFWIJ has been monitoring the situation in various countries around the world, where we have observed the various aspects of threats and attacks in the different regions with a focus on their peculiar nature of incidents. In order to gather data, CFWIJ kept a close watch on the news, updates and firsthand information regarding the many dangers women journalists encounter, which put their safety at risk. The data and information documented by CFWIJ have been consolidated in this report that shares the findings of our work so far.
