Join grantees Amie Ferris-Rotman and Zahra Joya for a live webinar to discuss their reporting on Afghan women refugees. Ferris-Rotman and Joya co-led the cross-borders collaboration “Far From Home,” a TIME magazine cover story about the women who fled Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover of Kabul in August 2021.
- Amie Ferris-Rotman is a British-American journalist who was previously the Reuters senior correspondent in Afghanistan, where she started Sahar Speaks, a training, mentoring, and publishing program for Afghan female reporters. She is now the global news editor at New Lines Magazine, and has also held positions at The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, and The Wall Street Journal.
- Zahra Joya is an Afghan journalist who founded her own news agency, Rukhshana Media, to give a voice to Afghan women domestically and globally. She is a TIME magazine Woman of the Year and the winner of the Gates Foundation’s 2022 Changemaker Award. She was airlifted out of Afghanistan after the fall of Kabul, and is now leading Rukhshana from exile in London.
The discussion will be moderated by Pulitzer Center Editorial Intern Grace Jensen, who has previously interviewed Ferris-Rotman and Joya on their reporting process. Mikaela Schmitt, the program coordinator for the Campus Consortium and Outreach team at the Pulitzer Center, is organizing the event. There will be time for questions from the audience.
