Insight Talk: Pandemic Through the Eyes of Women Journalists

The Long Documentary Committee and Mentorship Committee of the International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) created a podcast series with support from the Journalism and Media International Center of the Oslo Metropolitan University in Norway.

Women journalists from India, Pakistan, Kenya and Uganda share insights on the challenges and breakthroughs while covering the pandemic.

The first episode is a conversation with Tanzeela Mazhar, a journalist from Pakistan who is a COVID-19 survivor. She also got pregnant during the pandemic but continued reporting despite the many health challenges. IAWRT member from Pakistan Qudsia Mehmood spoke with Tanzeela in this episode.
