Jessie Opoien, opinion editor for The (Madison, Wisconsin) Capital Times, broke journalism convention by sharing the offensive message. That same convention asks news workers to ignore slurs and threats, promote their work on social media, and focus on their assignments instead of their detractors. That’s a prescription for PTSD, especially for women journalists.

It’s time to hold editors accountable for harassed news workers - Poynter

If you are an editor, publisher or general manager, what, if anything, do you do when employees, especially women, are harassed online?

Not long after my wife and I moved in to our home, our sense of security was shattered. The sense of violation that accompanies, or immediately follows, an invasion of private space is not easily shaken. Such violation elicits an immediate, and often excessive, shift in state of mind and alters the perception of our physical surroundings. It changed the way I think about my home and how I occupy it. My habits and routines shifted. Every noise was suspect. As a result, I forced myself to think like a burglar in order to stay one step ahead.

Blind – Picto and Magnum Photos: 70 Years of Correspondences

Magnum Photos’ Gilles Peress in a conversation with Raymond Depardon offered an interpretation of this evolution of the print through history that could be applied to many other Magnum photographers: “When you look at Henri’s prints all through the years, you see an evolution between these “blond” prints of the fifties and the prints as of the years 1968-1970. As of that period, the prints have higher contrasts with another interpretation of light, and the question is, to know whether he [Henri-Cartier Bresson] is the one responsible, or if the times are. I think that in the fifties there was an interpretation of light and rendition that fulfilled another function, that of creating a certain harmony, a peace after the war, but that with the mounting of [societal] contradictions in the sixties, the tonality of prints not only of Henri’s, but of others too- undergoes a radical change.”
