For International Women's Day, I want to share my favorite radio story, one which, alas, never aired. I reported this piece last year for World Vision Report, which was suddenly cancelled about a month after I filed. The piece never made it on the air in the meantime, but Chouchou Namegabe and the women at the center of this story are incredible.
I'll be spending this International Women's Day in rural Liberia, with Front Page Africa journalist Mae Azango, reporting about traditional midwives and childbirth. Mae's one of the journalists in the Pulitzer Center's Reproductive Health collaborative reporting project.
Liberia is a country with some pretty poor maternal mortality numbers. But this other pattern -- hanging out on this day with dynamic local female journalists -- is a pretty good one.
