This report by the Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (Abraji) – supported by UNESCO’s Global Media Defense Fund – provides an overview of violence against women journalists and gender-based attacks on communicators in Brazil in 2021.
The data include records of public attacks against women (both cisgender and transgender), media focused on feminist agendas, and aggressions with sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or misogynistic traits, classified as “gender attacks” and that can victimize men and women (cisgender or transgender) and non-binary people. Regardless of the victim, the main attribute of a gender attack is that the perpetrator relies on sexuality or gender identity to attack their target.
