From physical to digital to psychological threats, CPJ wants to understand the types of threats women and gender nonconforming journalists face, what safety and security information is available to them, and what kind of related training, if any, they have received. Even if you have not faced any safety issues, we would still like to hear from you. Our goal is to understand where the gaps are in terms of journalists' safety knowledge and to develop appropriate tools and resources to better support journalists based on the risk environment in which they work. CPJ is looking for a varied group of respondents from many different journalism backgrounds.
Speaking about incidents you faced can, understandably, be traumatic. More information about safety resources, including trauma support, is listed at the end of this survey. (Please note that CPJ does not provide direct counselling.)
Please respond to this survey by March 31, 2019. CPJ will follow up with respondents in a few months to see if or how their perceptions of their personal journalistic safety have changed.
This survey was created by Lucy Westcott, the James Foley Fellow at the Committee to Protect Journalists. If you have any questions, concerns, thoughts, or comments about this survey, please email LWESTCOTT@CPJ.ORG. Thank you for your input and for your time.
