Message on International Women’s Day

Reporters Without Borders today urged support for women journalists, activists, bloggers and Internet users speaking out for their rights in the face of “increasing repression” by governments and threats from religious groups.

“The imprisonment, torture, prosecution and death threats against them must be exposed,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “It is unacceptable that today, in 2008, people can still be jailed or threatened with death for raising this rights issue.”
