Truthdig Women Reporting

Under its initiative Global Voices: Truthdig Women Reporting, Truthdig publishes articles written by a network of female foreign correspondents from many parts of the world. Some among them have risked their lives in pursuit of the truth.

The correspondents cover issues within their home countries and provide local perspectives on subjects of international scope and impact. In addition, Global Voices features a mentoring program in which selected journalists guide a new generation of reporters in their respective nations.

The initiative was initially developed in collaboration with the International Women’s Media Foundation in 2014. Since then, the circle of brave women journalists has grown beyond IWMF winners. In 2022, for the first time, one of our mentees has been commissioned as a veteran and can now pass that knowledge on to another generation.
