Write to End VAW Awards
Write To End Violence Against Women Public Recognition Awards 2020
Help us recognise media workers who are ending men’s violence against women, one piece at a time.
This year our annual The Write to End Violence Against Women Awards are not taking place. Instead we invited the public to nominate the articles, blogs, and other media content for the Write to End Violence Against Women Public Recognition Award.
We would like to thank everyone who sent in nominations for our #WriteToEndViolenceAgainstWomen Public Recognition Awards.
Your nominations helped us show our appreciation to the writers and contributors who work tirelessly to promote gender equality and change social attitudes around violence against women and girls. The content we received was of a very high quality and we appreciated every entry.
The Winners of this years The Write To End Violence Against Women Public Recognition Awards are (in alphabetical order):
Wooden Spoon Award
Wooden Spoon Award is elected to a theme, rather than to an individual journalist or article. This recognises and highlights the collective responsibility of writers to represent the issues responsibly. The Wooden Spoon Award aims to tackle misrepresentation of the issues that lead to irresponsible reporting that reinforces the attitudes that enable gender-based violence.
