The Second Women in Journalism (WiJ) Conference took place at the MUSON Centre, Lagos on July 2, 2015. It was a gathering of more than 300 leading women journalists from print, electronic and online media for discussions focusing on truth and objectivity in the digital age. The keynote speech was delivered by veteran journalist Senator Chris Anyanwu (MFR), who encouraged all women present to continue reporting the news objectively and without fear. The Winner of the 1998 Courage in Journalism Award also spoke of the need for women to commit to self improvement in a profession that has witnessed decline in recent times.
