The Tico Times and #MeToo in Costa Rica
Never in the Tico Times’ 62 year history have its journalists worked harder than we have this month to bring you transparent, ethical and honest reporting on the biggest stories in Costa Rica.
The #MeToo movement came to Costa Rica last week, and it came in one of the biggest ways possible. This movement and our coverage is bigger than one story. In keeping with our principles of independent reporting, our small and dedicated team of journalists is gearing up to explore these issues even further.
We want to collect and share the best practices from around the world for reporting on gender issues, sexual violence and harassment. We want to find out what Costa Rica is doing to help when it comes to mental health and supporting everyone affected by these issues.
We also want to hear from women who aren’t in the Central Valley, who don’t have the privilege many of us do. The migrants who work in hotels, the locals forced to put up with harassment for tourist dollars, those who don’t feel that speaking up is an option.
But our reporting is funded by readers like you and we can only grow with your help. Our goal is to reach 1,000 new subscribers this month. Click here for more about how to donate.
Become a member of The Tico Times 5% Club with a monthly donation and support our journalists at a critical moment in Costa Rican history. Because now, more than ever, quality, ethical, in-depth local journalism matters.
