Feminist Journalists Programme And Funding

The Association for Women’s Rights in Development invites feminist journalists to participate in a year-long training.

The Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) is a global, feminist, membership, movement-support organisation.

For over 35 years, AWID has been a part of an ecosystem of feminist movements working to achieve gender justice and women’s human rights worldwide.

AWID is aiming to build deep and meaningful relationships with journalists who are interested in reporting on feminist and social justice issues.

In this pilot project, they are aiming to create a cohort of 15 journalists who are interested in reporting about the ways in which feminists resist oppression, whilst co-creating a more just world. 

AWID intends to launch this project in May 2021. It will consist of six online sessions, which will last through to May 2022. Participants will be provided with honorariums of US$15,000, which will be paid in two tranches.

Participants may use these honorariums as they wish, to support their living and reporting expenses.

The editorial independence of journalists will be held as sacrosanct and there is no expectation that particular stories will be written by participants in this project.

The deadline is on Saturday 8th May 2021.


Main Criteria

AWID’s Feminist Journalist project will prioritise participants who represent the priority constituencies, i.e. trans people, Black feminists, women with disabilities, sex workers, and indigenous feminist.

A CV and a cover letter are required.
