Global Voices: Truthdig Women Reporting
Truthdig has launched an initiative called Global Voices: Truthdig Women Reporting. The project creates a network of female foreign correspondents in collaboration with the International Women’s Media Foundation. These writers come from various countries and have all been honored by the IWMF for their courageous journalism. Since 1990, the IWMF’s awards have recognized female reporters who risk their lives to expose the truth around the world.
The correspondents will cover issues within their home countries and will provide local perspectives on subjects of international scope and impact. In addition, Global Voices features a mentoring program in which the selected journalists will guide a new generation of reporters in their countries.
