William Freivogel, director of the SIU School of Journalism, leads a discussion with radio journalist Michael Kavanagh, San Francisco Chronicle feature writer Meredith May, and former McClatchey Baghdad reporter Alaa Majeed about the impact of war on women and children around the world. The journalists, whose work is sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, were invited to speak at the SIU Carbondale campus on the topic "Women - Children - Crisis." Kavanaugh has covered the use of rape as a weapon of war in Congo, while May has reported on child indentured servants in western Nepal. Majeed has written about the lives of Iraqi women and the impact of the U.S. military intervention in her country. The School of Journalism,Women's Studies, Global Media Research Center, and Paul Simon Public Policy Institute brought the journalists to campus.
