While the journalism industry has recognized the dangers of physical attacks, the same sense of urgency is needed to address online attacks. To bolster women and nonbinary journalists’ digital security and help the news media at large better support their employees’ online safety, convening individuals and organizations to address these issues, the IWMF has formed the Coalition Against Online Violence (CAOV).
The Coalition Against Online Violence is a collection of global organizations working to find better solutions for journalists facing online abuse, harassment and other forms of digital attack. The CAOV is funded by Craig Newmark Philanthropies and founded by the International Women’s Media Foundation.
