Subtitle: The Impact of Publishing
2017 finalist for The Anthony Shadid Award for Journalism Ethics, Lauren Wolfe, discusses how she had to weigh whether publishing a story would do more harm than good when seeking to bring international attention to the plight of young girls being kidnapped and raped in a village in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. [Wolfe provided this commentary for the Center in spring of 2017].
