Young Danish reporters put human rights on the front page
Stepping into the shoes of journalists as part of a national competition, school students in Denmark put the spotlight on sexual and reproductive rights by publishing 120 newspapers on human rights. “It has been important for us to tell the stories we heard in our interviews,” shares one of the young reporters. “I was shocked by some of the testimonies”, says another. Investigating how gender-based discrimination is formed, and how physical and sexual violence affect women in Denmark, around 7,000 secondary students enrolled in a national journalism competition and became reporters for a week.
