About the Digital Safe House and Collaborative Platform for Women Journalists in the Philippines
Women journalists in the Philippines are being attacked relentlessly.
This is glaring especially under current political climate where intolerance to dissent, tyranny and misogyny are rampant. Women journalists known for their critical reporting of government policies are not only being denied access to their sources. They are also being vilified, tagged as enemies of the state. Such tagging increasingly results in arbitrary arrests and detention, with women journalists falsely accused of crimes they did not commit.
In addition to judicial harassment, Filipino women journalists experience workplace harassment and online harassment and digital threats.
The Digital Safe House and Collaborative Platform intends to help women journalists experiencing these attacks.
This platform serves as a first-stop for women journalists at risk and those who are seeking support in the face of various attacks, abuse and violence.
This platform was built by IAWRT, funded by IMS in collaboration with the Philippine Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists (PPSAJ) coalition. We made sure to build this platform with trusted digital experts who are working with human rights and freedom of expression organizations around the world.
IAWRT is a global network of 14 national chapters and members in 54 countries. Its members are professional communicators or researchers in media and communications.
IAWRT strives to meet the urgent global challenges faced by women in and around the media.
