Sexual harassment is hardly new but the #MeToo movement has had important impact in many parts of the world and on parts of the media. It's become a critical area of investigation for journalists. Here are three journalists doing exactly that.

After her own boss attacked her, TV journalist Shiori Ito exposed a hidden history of sexual violence in Japan and put #MeToo on the map in that country. And Pascale Müller reports on sexual violence and politics at Buzzfeed News Germany. Cécile Andrzejewski has investigated sexual violence and harassment in medical settings.
