Speaker Series: Interrupting Rape Worldwide: Notes on a Difficult Task

M. Sophia Newman Portrait

Event Details

Funded by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, Newman investigates whether violence prevention programs can be expanded to address intimate partner violence and reduce infections that rape can spread. M. Sophia Newman is a health journalist and medical editor from Chicago with a master’s degree in public health. Linking her public health background with an interest in creative non-fiction, she has been published in The Atlantic, Religion & Politics, Tricycle, Vice, Vox, Tin House, Literary Hub, Next City, and elsewhere.

Ms. Newman will share the outcome, including some surprising results, of investigative journalism in the United State and South Africa on whether a method used to successfully deter gun violence worldwide could be expanded to prevent rape and other acts of violence towards women.
