We are so excited to welcome award-winning Jordanian journalist Rana Husseini to Green Bay from April 3-13. Ms. Husseini has a full schedule, with speaking engagements on UWGB and St. Norbert’s campuses as well as at venues in the community. Three of the easiest ways to hear her speak are:
Wednesday, April 4, 2:15-3:35 • UW-GB Talk on her book “Murder in the Name of Honor”, Christie Theater
Tuesday, April 10, TBA • Speak at the St. Norbert College Women’s Center
Friday, April 13, 12 – 1:30 • Fox Cities Book Fair, UW-Fox Valley
Rana’s reporting on what she always refers to as “so-called” honor crimes for the Jordan Times was instrumental in breaking the silence and sparking a grassroots movement in that country that successfully reformed the way such crimes are treated under the law. A powerful and outspoken advocate for human rights, Ms. Husseini also provides valuable insights into the world of Jordanian youth (especially girls’ football).
