All too often, women have to work extra hard to gain the same respect / status as a man in a similar position, especially those in foreign countries. To this end, we at Everipedia have created a list of female reporters and journalists that we believe deserve recognition for their work. The International Women in Media Scholarship aims to bring awareness and recognition to women working tirelessly across the globe in search of the truth.
