Reporting Gender Based Violence: A Handbook for Journalists

This handbook, published by the Inter Press Service, seeks to help reporters and news managers grapple with the challenge of reporting gender-based violence in a way that does not perpetuate gender stereotypes but informs and encourages public debate.  It brings together the available expertise and data based on the growing body of knowledge worldwide to help us understand why gender-based violence takes place and its profound and far-reaching consequences on women, families, and societies.  Each section includes an overview of the issue, some facts and statistics, and a sample feature to provide an example of best practices and/or what to consider when writing about gender-based violence.
