From Marly Falcon, Knight Foundation contributing blogger:
The International Women's Media Foundation, IWMF, selected Firle Davies, a journalist for the British Broadcasting Corporation, as the 2009-2010 recipient of the Knight Foundation-funded Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship.
Each year, one woman in print journalism, broadcast or online media is selected to become an Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship recipient. The recipient then works on human rights journalism and social justice issues.
The fellowship is named after a Boston Globe reporter and winner of the 1998 IWMF Courage in Journalism Award who was killed while on assignment in Iraq in 2003.
