Program Overview:

The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) helps women transform the global news media by protecting, supporting, and promoting their work. IWMF fellows and grantees — both freelance and staff journalists — become experts in reporting in underserved regions, generate must-read stories, align with top outlets, and bring critical issues affecting women and others to light.

IWMF is the only organization which provides safety training, byline opportunities, and emergency support tailored to female journalists and photographers around the world. With this work, the organization aggressively pursues a future with press freedom. A future which includes a diversity of stories, voices, and perspectives. There is a great focus by our “Fellows” and “Awardees” on the environment, climate change impacts on local communities, women, and their children, as well as loss of biodiversity, wildlife, and productive agricultural land.

It also recognizes “badass” female journalists and photographers whose courage sets them apart. It researches the factors that allow journalism to remain dominated by men while advocating for inclusive practices that help propel women and minorities into leadership.
