Barbara gave examples of the kinds of stories she and the site cover and explained how she and editor-in-chief Dulcie Leimbach work to determine what their website will cover, and the challenges of getting people interested in the U.N.

She shared stories from her career, including covering the assassination of India prime minister Rajiv Gandhi from just a few yards away and explained the difficulties and challenges that women reporters faced, as well as one advantage she had covering India as a woman.

She also provided advice to future journalists answering Emmy Liederman’s questions.

We also paid tribute to another New York Times editor in our Women’s History Month segment and continued our work in paying tribute to TCNJ journalism professor Bob Cole.
