On World Press Freedom Day, we celebrate journalists around the world, especially those who bravely pursue investigative reporting to improve the lives of women and girls.

Here are some key statistics highlighting the importance of their work:

  1. 1 in 3 women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime (UN Women).
  2. 32 million girls are out of school due to child marriage, early pregnancy, and lack of access (UNESCO).

Investigative journalists expose these injustices and hold powerful actors accountable.

Their work can lead to:

  1. Policy reforms
  2. Increased awareness: Shining a light on issues like gender-based violence or child exploitation can spark public outrage and inspire action.
  3. Empowerment for women and girls: Investigative reports can give voice to victims, leading to support networks and improved access to resources.

Importance of a free press:

  • Accountability: A free press holds governments and institutions accountable, fostering transparency and good governance.
  • Informed Public: Independent journalism provides citizens with the information they need to make informed decisions.
  • Social Change: Investigative journalism can expose injustices and spark social movements for positive change.

World press freedom is essential for a healthy democracy and a well-informed society. By understanding the challenges and supporting journalists, we can work towards a world where everyone has access to free and independent information.
