Jineth Bedoya Reaches Milestone for Women Journalists

Award-winning journalist Jineth Bedoya has survived multiple violent attacks during her efforts to get at the truth. In 2009 Jineth broke her silence and became a leading advocate for survivors of sexual violence in Colombia. Jineth tells us about her involvement in the historic Colombian peace process and how it is impacting women activists today. She also updates us on the case against her perpetrators, which last year was elevated to the Inter-American Court on Human Rights. It is the first time the court will hear a case about a woman journalist in armed conflict.

Jineth is the winner of the World Press Freedom Prize (2020) and the Courage in Journalism Award (2001). You can follow her at @jbedoyalima.
