A Washington Post Live Event

For 30 years, the Courage in Journalism Awards have honored more than 100 brave women journalists from 56 countries who refuse to step aside or be silenced in their pursuit of the truth. In 2020, as government oppression, harassment, accusations of fake news and growing mistrust of the media threaten press freedom globally, women journalists’ voices are under attack. Join us to celebrate three decades of the bravery and honor this year’s courageous journalists persisting to report against all odds.
