Each year, the International Women’s Media Foundation pays tribute to female journalists who have put their lives in jeopardy in order to report the news. For these women, death threats and kidnapping attempts are no reason to halt their dogged pursuit of the truth. Join us as the extraordinary recipients of this fall’s Courage in Journalism Awards offer their astounding stories of life as journalists under the most dangerous circumstances imaginable.
