IFJ Voice March 2020 - Editorial: Against Violence and harassment

March 8 was an opportunity for the IFJ and its affiliates to demand that governments transpose ILO Convention 190 on violence and harassment in the world of work into national law.

This convention is a concrete response to the endemic violence facing journalists and specifically women media workers through harassment, online threats, sexist comments and physical violence.

Keep calling on your governments to ratify Convention 190  to oblige media employers to put in place real policies to curb violence in the workplace, including online violence.

Join the campaign.
