In this webinar with Akina Mama wa Afrika, I speak n the trivialisation of sexual harassment and perpetuation of rape culture
Sexual harassment seems to be the only crime where the VICTIMS become the ACCUSED. Automatically accused of lying, inciting, provoking, seducing… The list goes on. And our job as reporters is to protect victims from a MEDIA TRIAL.
The way that we report sexual harassment has put to much on victims and not enough on perpetrators. And the media, the one “unbiased” conduit of information to the people, has become a driver of victim shaming.
