Women journalists are essential workers.

Let’s show women journos that we see them, we appreciate them, and we celebrate them.

Reporting on a global pandemic and a reckoning for racial justice, our 2020 #JournoHeroes have been on the frontlines of crisis, putting their own health, safety and wellbeing at risk to keep the public informed. These women are everyday heroes, and while they may not be the biggest names, their impact is beyond measure. Together, let’s use this month to make sure their voices are heard.
