Pulitzer Center international journalist to speak on campus Feb. 28
ATHENS, Ohio (Feb. 27, 2012)—Pulitzer Center international journalist Habiba Nosheen will share her experience reporting on rape cases and the tradition of honor killings in Pakistan.
In parts of the country, women who are raped are seen as "tainted" and ordered to be killed by their families or tribes to restore "honor." Nosheen's documentary reveals what it takes for women to fight for justice in Pakistan's court system. Her investigative reports as a Pakistani-Canadian filmmaker and journalist expose grave issues confronted by women around the world.
Nosheen's visit is hosted by the Institute for International Journalism (IIJ), directed by Yusuf Kalyango, and co-sponsored by the IIJ, the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, and the School of Communication Studies.
Nosheen will speak at 6:30 p.m. in Scripps Hall, Room 111 (Anderson Auditorium.) The event is free and open to the public.
