AfP held our latest edition of the Conversations with Extraordinary Women Speaker Series through our Women & Peacebuilding Affinity Group on July 11th. The discussion featured Diane Nininahazwe, a Burundian journalist. The political conflict in Burundi has greatly reduced freedom of the press and has caused many female journalists to leave the profession, for fear of their security. Diane spoke passionately about how Burundians are resisting oppression in creative ways through innovative social media reporting. Diane is part of a team at Voice of America that shares local stories and keep the airwaves open.
