The award, presented by the Canadian Journalism Foundation and Canadian Women’s Foundation, celebrates a journalist who is raising awareness about women’s equality issues in Canada and aims to inspire an increase in the media coverage and voice of women.

Named after award-winning Canadian journalist, author, social activist and feminist Michele Landsberg, the $5,000 prize, awarded by the Canadian Women’s Foundation, will recognize a working journalist (employed or freelance) doing exceptional research, analysis and writing through a gender lens about women’s equality issues in Canada.

The winner will be announced at the 2019 Canadian Journalism Foundation Awards.
