Report: The Silencing Crime: Sexual Violence and Journalists
June 8, 2011 Leave a comment
Yesterday, the Committee to Protect Journalists released a report on sexual violence experienced by journalists doing their work across the world.
This has been under-reported, the silence coming from the idea that it would be unprofessional to complain or reflect poorly on the places where they experienced the violence, and so on. Finally, following incidents during this spring’s tumultuous uprisings in West Asia and North Africa, journalists have begun to speak and write about this horrible occupational hazard.
