Headlines out of India in recent years have mostly focused on growing numbers of cases of violence against girls and women. But those numbers also reflect a reality we don’t hear about as much – Indian girls and women today feel more empowered to report incidences of violence than a few decades ago. Rhitu Chatterjee has spent several years covering gender issues in India and will speak about how to tell nuanced, deep, and surprising stories about a topic that makes for sensational headlines and predictable narratives.

RHITU CHATTERJEE is a reporter and editor on NPR's Science Desk, where she reports the latest news and feature stories on science, health, and the environment. Previously, she covered women's issues in New Delhi. Her reporting went beyond the breaking news headlines about sexual violence to document the underlying social pressures faced by Indian girls and women. Rhitu has won two reporting grants from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and was awarded a certificate of merit by the Gabriel Awards in 2014.
