Guide to Reporting on Sexual and Gender-based Violence in Nigeria

The reporting of Sexual and Gender-based Violence (SGBV) in the media affects how society views this type of violence. Thus, there is a need for responsible and transformational media coverage of SGBV, particularly by influencers and bloggers who work in new media.
This guide, created by WITNESS Africa and the Stand to End Rape Initiative, offers helpful guidelines through case study analysis to ensure that journalists and other stakeholders in the media ecosystem prioritize ethical considerations that centre on survivors in their reporting of SGBV stories.
