Let's Talk: Personal Boundaries, Safety & Women in Journalism


In this video, nine leading female journalists share their experiences of being women in journalism and how it is difficult to manage personal boundaries and dealing with the constant risk of of harassment

In October 2017, following the spreading of the #MeToo movement reckoning with sexual harassment, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma asked nine leading female journalists to talk about what it means to be women in journalism, managing personal boundaries and safety, both with sources and colleagues, and how this poses difficult choices and challenges. Women journalists have to face unwanted presumptions, sexual harassment and the threat of gender-based violence. The video is in memory of the murdered Swedish freelance reporter Kim Wall.
