Drawing on information gathered by CPJ from journalists around the globe, the roundtable discussion will be explore possible solutions and approaches for tackling these challenges. It will open with an overview of CPJ’s most recent research and findings about online harassment against women journalists.

The presentation will unpack the nature of these gendered threats, and the experiences of the journalists on the receiving end. These findings will anchor the discussion, which will seek to identify both recommendations and an understanding of resources available from the diverse group of participants.
