Is Women’s Rights a forbidden subject?

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) published a report Women’s Rights: Forbidden Subject to mark International Women’s Day. The RSF announcement states that the report ‘sheds light on the difficulties that journalists – both men and women – can encounter when they cover women’s rights’. The report covers five areas (chapter headings) to illustrate its points:

1. Covering women’s rights can kill

2. A range of abuses to silence journalists

3. Leading predators

4. Authoritarian regimes

5. Shut up or resist
