Defying Hate Speech and Threats Against Female Journalists

On December 2, Sweden celebrated the 250th anniversary of the Freedom of the Press Act, which was the first of its kind in the world. To mark the occasion, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Fojo Media Institute/Linnæus University, the Swedish Institute and the Swedish National Commission for UNESCO gathered a powerful group of female journalists together to share stories about preserving journalistic freedom in the face of harassment, hate speech, and threats.

Anita joined a select group of influential journalists and writers to offer her personal perspective on what it means to be a visible and vocal advocate for feminist issues while facing threats and character assassination from online attackers.
