Journalists in the crosshairs, women rising

Women are gaining influence as leaders throughout the world, fighting for peace, justice, the environment and civil society.

In this program we profile three independent journalists, unbought and unbossed. Women journalist heroines!

This Women's Desk program is a special collaboration with the Women Rising Radio Project, Lynn Feinerman and Crown Sephira Productions.


Giuliana Sgrena, Italian journalist, kidnapped by Iraqi resistance fighters while on assignment, then shot by US soldiers on her release; María Suárez, founder, FIRE: Feminist International Radio Endeavor of Costa Rica; Sarah Olson, US journalist, broke the story of Army Lieutenant Ehren Watada's refusal to deploy to Iraq.
