The IWMF’s Gender Justice Reporting Initiative 2021 for Journalists in South Africa and Uganda

Application Deadline: May 11th 2021

The IWMF’s Gender Justice Reporting Initiative will enhance coverage of gender issues in South Africa and Uganda. In 2021, the IWMF will select 30+ journalists in South Africa and Uganda to participate in this program. Our fellows will complete a six-month, virtual training course, which includes physical and digital security workshops, and will have the opportunity to receive reporting grants and mentoring from experienced editors.

The course will be led by South African journalist, editor, trainer and media manager, Paula Fray, and Ugandan journalist, editor, and media trainer, Barbara Among. Through training, funding, and personalized support, the IWMF will increase the volume and quality of reporting on women and other traditionally marginalized voices. The journalists’ accurate, nuanced, and inclusive reporting will respond to critical information gaps and challenge well-established, misogynistic narratives in the news media.
