Women journalists face sexual harassment in the newsroom and in the field. Internews in Tanzania raises awareness on “sextorsion” in the media with a PSA launched during the 16 days of activism on Gender Based Violence in the workplace. The PSA, based on a real incident, shows a case of sexual harassment of a woman journalist while interviewing a source.
The PSA ends with the hotline number managed by Tanzanian Women Lawyers Association where people can report all cases of sexual harassment.

USAID’s Boresha Habari implemented by Internews in Tanzania aims to support women journalists, and sextorsion is one of the biggest obstacle in their careers.
