A three-year study published by the International Center for Journalists shows online violence against women journalists has reached an all-time high. In this edition of Update-1, ICFJ Research Director Julie Posetti talks with Broadcast Podcast team member Irv Chapman about the study, which documents alarming trends. Dr. Posetti describes the internet as a "sea of toxicity" for women journalists, who she says are now exposed to more online violence with worse impacts. Dr. Posetti discusses the study's findings, including 20 percent of women responding to a survey saying they experienced offline abuse, harassment or attacks that they attribute to online violence.
