Website The Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID)
AWID’s FJP aims to build deep and meaningful relationships with journalists who are interested in reporting on feminist and social justice issues whilst co-creating a more just world. AWID believes that strong and compelling reporting that highlights the perspectives and propositions of feminist activists can contribute to changing public perception on an issue, and in turn influence policy makers and funders.
In this pilot project we 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. We will specifically work to meet the following goals:
- Build relationships amongst journalists and activists interested in Co-Creating Feminist Realities – the models and solutions that activists are creating – as well as highlighting the ways in which activists resist systemic oppression.
- Provide networking and learning opportunities for journalists.
- Strengthen relationships between journalists and feminist activists from around the world.

Technical details & timeline
AWID intends to launch this project in May 2021. It will consist of 6 online sessions, which will last through to May 2022. Participants in the project 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.
