The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) is backing a new global campaign to tackle gender-based violence at work.

The campaign, co-ordinated by the ITUC, will kick-off on 14 February and run for 23 days up to International Women’s Day on 8 March. The campaign takes on added importance in light of the findings of a recent IFJ survey which revealed that almost one in two women journalists have suffered sexual harassment, psychological abuse, online trolling and others forms of gender-based violence (GBV) while working.

Here’s how individuals and organisations can get involved.
