On October 18, the Moscow Times reported from New York that Anna Politkovskaya, a well-known war correspondent who writes for Novaya Gazeta, had been recognized, along with a woman journalist from Pakistan and one from Zimbabwe, as a recipient of this year’s International Women’s Media Foundation’s Courage in Journalism Award. Judy Woodruff of CNN remarked in introducing the recipients: “These women of courage each made it their personal mission to take on this fight… without regard for their own physical safety.”
