This event is SOLD OUT.

When reporting on an international crisis, it’s important for journalists to seek out the voices of women. In partnership with Peace is Loud, the Norwegian Foreign Ministry and International Civil Action Network (ICAN), the OPC will host a forum on March 16 highlighting the work of women activists in North Africa and the Middle East.

NOTE: Please RSVP on the Eventbrite website by Thursday, March 12. An RSVP is mandatory to attend this event. 

Panelists are:

  • Egyptian journalist Rana Allam
  • Pakistani activist Mossarat Qadeem
  • Acclaimed filmmaker Gini Reticker
  • ICAN co-founder Sanam Anderlini


OPC Board of Governors member Rukmini Callimachi of The New York Times will moderate the discussion.

Prior to the panel clips will be shown from the upcoming multimedia project The Trials of Spring, featuring women activists in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as clips of interviews conducted with women activists in the region on how to combat extremism and militarism.
