Since 1990, the IWMF has paid tribute to over 100 women journalists who set themselves apart by their extraordinary bravery. Facing and surviving danger to uncover the truth, they raise the bar for reporting under duress. With the 2014 Courage in Journalism Awards, we honor CNN war correspondent Arwa Damon (USA), editor-in-chief of Le Souverain, Solange Lusiku Nsimire (Democratic Republic of the Congo), and TV Reporter Brankica Stanković (Serbia).
Alexandra Trower, Executive Vice President, Global Communications, at The Estée Lauder Companies has been named the 2014 IWMF Leadership Honoree, for demonstrating an outstanding commitment to responsible and innovative leadership.
The 2014 Award ceremonies will be held in New York on October 22, and in Los Angeles on October 28.
