Women Journalists in Revolt, featuring Chie Matsumoto

Continent of Resistance by Kevin Lin & Kriangsak Teera-Hong

Episode notes

We interview Chie Matsumoto about the progress and challenges of women media workers organizing against sexual harassment in Japan.

Centering around recent successes of journalists speaking out against predatory behaviours, the conversation touches on addressing sexual harassment as a workplace issue, solidarity building, the culture of male domination in the media profession and labor union, underrepresentation of casualized women workers, and future of the labour movement in Japan.

Chie Matsumoto is a union organizer and a journalist at media cooperative Unfiltered and an adjunct media instructor in the Faculty of Law at Hosei University in Japan.
