New platform launched to monitor threats against women journalists - IFEX

9.3.16

New platform launched to monitor threats against women journalists - IFEX: The Women's Reporting Point is hosted by the ECPMF to allow victims to report threats via encrypted messaging. The report will be handled with care and confidentiality by a female member of the staff. The reports made to the ECPMF will be collected in a database (with details of the woman's identity removed) and form the basis of an analysis of the scale of the problem across Europe. It is also supported by the EFJ affiliate in Italy, FNSI.

The initiative is a response to the growing evidence showing that more and more women journalists countered gender-based violence and online threats. While these threats are growing, research showed that victims are often reluctant to report on the attacks, especially online threats.
