(Why) Reporting the Voices of African Women and Girls Matters


Thursday, October 11, 2018, 4:15pm


Knafel Center - 10 Garden Street Cambridge, MA 02138


An all-purpose Africa reporter, National Public Radio’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton is often to be found—in open-air markets, on the front line, in the boardroom, in educational institutions, in urban and village settings, in creative spaces and sacred places—listening to women and girls talk about the continent, the world, and what matters to them. And to us all.

Registration for this event is required

Free and open to the public.

The Rama S. Mehta Lecture at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study was established by Catherine Atwater Galbraith, John Kenneth Galbraith, and the Mehta family, in memory of Rama S. Mehta. Each event includes a distinguished woman in public affairs, the sciences, or the arts who has a deep understanding of the problems of women in developing countries. The Radcliffe Institute is grateful to the Benazir Bhutto Leadership Program of ClassACT HR ’73 and members of the Harvard-Radcliffe Class of 1973 for their leadership support of the 2018–2019 Rama S. Mehta Lecture.
