Event Details

women and children at risk 

How can journalists, writers, and public interest groups best shed light on issues facing women and children around the world while remaining sensitive to individual needs and concerns? Filmmaker Habiba Nosheen, author Kem Knapp Sawyer and Victoria Dunning of The Global Fund for Children share their insights.


For the last two years Habiba has documented the life of Kainat Soomro, a Pakistani girl who was gang raped, faced the threat of "honor killing," and later fought for justice in the local courts. Habiba's work has appeared in The New York Times, NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

Kem will draw on her experiences reporting in Bangladesh, India, and Haiti for The Washington Post,, and other outlets. Her books for children include "Champion of Freedom: Mohandas Gandhi," "Refugees: Seeking a Safe Haven," and many others.

Victoria brings to the discussion her significant experience in developing countries, with a particular focus on strengthening youth health and development and maximizing access and quality of reproductive services. She is vice president for programs for The Global Fund for Children. Previously she has worked as a senior program officer with the United Nations Foundation, a clinic manager for the Young Men's Cliinic in New York City and a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa.
