“The IWMF is celebrating its 30th year of promoting press freedom and media diversity by supporting, protecting and promoting female journalists,” said Elisa Lees Muñoz, executive director of IWMF. “Attacks and harassment toward journalists, and particularly female journalists, are a persistent hazard. By partnering with The Post, the IWMF will continue its work defending female journalists, and breaking the barriers they face just for doing their job.”
“The Washington Post Press Freedom Partnership demonstrates the moral courage that American conflict journalist, James W. Foley, said was essential,” said Diane Foley, president and founder of the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation. “Before his murder, James said, ‘If I don’t have the moral courage to challenge authority, to write about things that may have reprisals on my career, if I don’t have that moral courage, we don’t have journalism.’ The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation is honored and grateful to be included in this press partnership to protect our democracy.”
