Digital & Physical Safety for Women Journalists
Date: Thursday 7th March 2024, 9am-5pm
Venue: The Frontline Club, London
Journalism can be a dangerous profession. More and more frequently, journalists have become targets of both online and in-person attacks. However, female journalists face a double challenge: being attacked as journalists and as women.
This workshop for female and non-binary journalists addresses safety concerns specific to women, focusing on how to deal with online harassment, trolls and the threat of doxing, as well as essential self-defence techniques to protect yourself in the field.
This workshop (value £250) includes lunch and refreshments and is fully funded for freelance journalists. A deposit of £30 is required to reserve your place but will be fully refunded upon completion of a brief survey at the end of the day.
- This workshop is only open to British freelance journalists or those currently based in the UK.
- You must have worked as a freelance journalist for at least one year to participate.
- Places are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
