Every year women journalists are killed, assaulted, threatened and defamed – all in pursuit of the truth.
Frontline Freelance Register (FFR) is run by freelancers, for freelancers. FFR is open to actively working, international freelance foreign and conflict journalists who take physical risks in their work, and sign up to the Code of Conduct. We aim to provide members with representation and a sense of community, vital in this fragmented profession.
The Frontline Freelance Register is a representative body for freelancers, created and run by freelancers.
The FFR's core objective is to support the physical and mental wellbeing of freelance journalists.
Security is an issue we all take seriously. The difference is that if an independent journalist gets kidnapped or killed, he or she will most likely be labelled as ‘an irresponsible daredevil'. If a staffer from a large organisation is kidnapped, he or she will most likely get television interviews and praise for ‘risking it all' to get the story.
