Don’t look at feminism as a dirty word...It just means equal, and surely you want to be equal.

Chistiane Amanpour

As renowned and (multiple) award-winning CNN international correspondent for nearly three decades, Chistiane Amanpour’s fearlessness and uncompromising approach is inspiring. Amanpour has addressed the damage of news neutrality in journalism, and instead has bravely spotlighted on gender discrimination and gender-based violence (while is usually avoided by others).

Amanpour brings awareness to the lack of laws and civil rights movements to help protect #MeToo incidents. Interacting with communities who implement traditional gender roles and often have male-dominant institutions, she has first-hand seen how women violence impacts their health and community long-term.

She is a board member of the Committee to Protect Journalists, the Centre of Public Integrity, and the International Women’s Media Foundation. She has won eleven News and Documentary Emmy Awards, four Peabody Awards, two George Polk Awards, three duPont-Columbia Awards, and the Courage in Journalism Award. She has also been named UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Freedom of the Press and the Safety of Journalists.
