Founding Director, The Coalition For Women In Journalism
Providing vital safety for female journalists covering war and conflict – and afterwards, supporting those suffering from PTSD
Kiran Nazish is founding director of The Coalition For Women In Journalism.
Launched in 2017, it is the first worldwide support network for female journalists ‘at high risk of violence and harassment,’ with targeted support for those reporting from the frontline. Kiran started her journalism career in her native Pakistan and was inspired to set up the New York-based organisation because of the danger she had faced as a female reporter based in war-torn Middle East. The Coalition offers comprehensive support for the journalists at risk of PTSD and is spearheading an initiative to help newsroom managers reduce it happening in the first place.
