CNN's Arwa Damon wins 2014 Courage in Journalism Award

CNN’s senior international correspondent Arwa Damon has been named a recipient of the 2014 Courage in Journalism Award, it was announced today by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF).

Celebrating its 25th year, the Courage Awards pay tribute to female journalists who risk their lives to report the news. This year’s recipients also include Brankica Stanković from Serbia and Solange Lusiku Nsimire from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

"As a journalist working for an international news network like CNN, the gender bias has largely been broken. Such is not the case for others – both men and women – in the field who have to chart their own course while facing threats at home without the protection of a major news network,” said Damon. “To be recognized alongside Brankica and Solange as well as recipients of years past – people I admire and respect, whose quality of journalism continues to raise the bar – is humbling. And it’s not just because they are women, but because they are stellar journalists who won't let anything or anyone stand in their way of pursuing the truth."
