No Safe Space: Harassment of Women in Media

Toronto, March 7, 2017 - It is not just Internet trolls. These days, it is often not safe for women to speak up anywhere - online, on air and in print. What can be done about the barrage of intimidation, threats, and abusive comments that seem determined to silence our voices? In the lead up to International Women’s Day, we tackle online harassment against women in media. Manisha Krishnan, senior writer for VICE CanadaHeather Mallick, columnist with the Toronto Star; and Janet McFarland, business reporter with The Globe and Mail, discuss the hazards of being a female journalist online and the policies and resources that can help make newsrooms and online communities welcoming to all. This discussion was moderated by Piya Chattopadhyay, host of CBC Radio’s Out in the Open.
