Sammanfattning: Titel: Den utländska skölden – En kvalitativ intervjustudie om kvinnliga frilansjournalisters iMexikos yrkeserfarenheterAuthor: Lisa AxelssonTutor: Gabriella SandstigNumber of pages: 51Number of words: 24 215Course: Bachelor thesis, JournalismPeriod: Fall 2017University: Dept. of Journalism, Media and Communication, Unviersity of GothenburgPurpose/Aim: The aim of the study is to map and analyze the working conditions, limitations andpossiblities for female freelance journalists in Mexico.Material/Method: This thesis is based upon semi-structured deep-interviews with seven female journalists who work for different kinds of media, with different background and differentnationalities. The interviews are based on theories about self-cersorship, gender, intersectionality, the freedom of freelanece journalists and the integrity of journalists.Main results: By analysing the answers of my respondents I have concluded that the mainpossibility with the working conditions of female freelance journalists in Mexico is their flexibility. As long as they feel like they are somewhat financially and physically safe, they can dothe type of journalism they prefer. Female freelance journalists are however limited by thefinancial scarcity of media world wide, which often don’t pay them enough and offer lackingsupport. The worst case seems to be with the Mexican media, who not only pay bad but often alsocensor a lot of reporting due to corruption. Freelancers are therefore reluctant to work withMexican media, and Mexican freelance journalist preferably turn to work for foreign new agencieswho also offer better conditions in terms of safety.Another finding of this study is that female freelance journalist are less likely to haveexperience of harassing comments, threats and violence related to their work compared to regular journalist in both Mexico and Sweden. This is probably due to a mixture of freelance journalist being harder to track, that working with globally known news outlets comes with a certain safety, and that the freelance journalists in the area rarely dig as deep as local journalists do in sensitive subjects. However, sexual harassment is a big part of the every day life.
