Last year, the University of Missouri School of Journalism gave eight individuals the Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism.
One of the eight is Mona Eltahawy, a columnist based in New York and an international public speaker on Arab and Muslim issues. Eltahawy has been named one of Newsweek Magazine’s “150 Fearless Women of 2012,” one of Time Magazine’s “People of the Year” and one of Arabian Business Magazine’s “100 Most Powerful Arab Women.”
She joined Global Journalist to talk about her work, and about the conditions in her home country, Egypt.
