A Washington Post Live Event

For 31 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 2021, women journalists are facing new challenges: a global pandemic, civil social uprisings, growing distrust of the media and a swell of online violence. Join us to honor the women who have persisted against the odds to share their communities’ stories and open our eyes to injustice.
