Newslaundry has earned yet more accolades for its journalism. This time, it is the Laadli Media and Advertising Award for Gender Sensitivity 2020, won by Cherry Agarwal for her English report headlined “An anatomy of op-ed and editorial pages”, by Md Asghar Khan for the Hindi story "Balatkar ke baad janmi bachhi ki keemat 15 hazar?", and by Ritika for her Hindi story "Children of War ki yaad Dilati Hiba Nisar".

The Laadli awards, now in their 10 edition, were announced at an online function on Friday.

These are the fourth, fifth and sixth Laadli awards Newslaundry has won. We received the Laadli Media Award for Gender Sensitivity in 2015 and 2018 as well, and the Breakthrough Media Award for Gender Sensitive Journalism in 2019.
