RUTH PADAWER - DART Center for Journalism and Trauma
This tip sheet, drawing on interviews with nine leading women in journalism and other sources, offers strategies for recognizing, mitigating and addressing sexual harassment and other predatory behavior while reporting.
Journalists work by building trusting, professional relationships with sources and colleagues alike. Sometimes sources or colleagues may challenge those boundaries with aggressions small and large, ranging from annoyance to assault, including unwanted sexual advances, sexual harassment or sexual violence.

Digital Safe House
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.
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.
