Program Title: Protecting female journalists in Canada
Description: This week on the show, rabble labour reporter Gabriela Calguay-Casuga joins The Coalition For Women In Journalism founder Kiran Nazish to talk about protecting female journalists in Canada. The Coalition For Women in Journalism is a New-York based, international support organization for female and LGBTQIA journalists from around the globe.
Today, Nazish joins Calguay-Casuga to talk about the increasingly vitriolic landscape female journalists in Canada are facing today – particularly, journalists of colour.
In September 2021, Canada was one of the top five countries in the world guilty of cyber violence against women, according to The Coalition for Women in Journalism.
What can be done to better protect our female and LGBTQIA journalists in Canada? And what do these staggering statistics say about our media landscape as a whole?
