Journalism takes strength of character, perseverance, and most importantly, the courage to ask the tough questions.
The International Women’s Media Foundation is honouring that courage through their annual Courage in Journalism Awards. These unique international awards recognize the bravery of female journalists who have shown a commitment to maintaining a free press in the face of government oppression, political pressure and physical danger.
Do you know a female journalist in your area that has shown this kind of courage and dedication to maintaining a free press? To nominate her today, or get more information on the awards, visit: http://iwmf.org/honoring-courage/2013-courage-in-journalism-awards/nomination.aspx 
Nominations and applications are due by March 1, 2013.
