Six Washington Post journalists were honored with the Newseum’s 2018 Free Expression Award for their reporting which uncovered sexual misconduct in the workplace. The Post’s winners included: Amy Brittain, Investigative Reporter; Irin Carmon, Outlook Contributing Writer; Alice Crites, Research Editor; Paul Farhi, Media Reporter; Stephanie McCrummen, National Enterprise Reporter; and Beth Reinhard, Investigative Reporter. Just last week, Crites, McCrummen and Reinhard received the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.
In their press release, the Newseum writes:
Their work broke through a dam of suppressed stories and silenced voices to reveal decades-long harassment throughout the American workplace, including media, film, sports, manufacturing, the arts and Congress.
The Post journalists were part of a group of 13 reporters from The Indianapolis Star, The New Yorker and The New York Times who shared this award.
