Although more individuals have access to content than ever before, journalism is under fire. In  2018, 94 journalists and media workers died in targeted killings, bomb attacks and  crossfire incidents. The combination of political polarization and technological change have facilitated the rapid spread of hate speech, misogyny and unverified 'fake news', making harder for jousnalist to perform their work.

This report presents a critical analysis of new trends in media freedom, pluralism, independence and the safety of journalists, with a special focus on gender equality in the media.
