Headlining the LDCW's yearlong theme "Women & Economic Justice," Ms. Lynsey Addario, a nationally acclaimed photojournalist, will speak for the 2018 Women's History Month Lecture.
Ms. Addario has captured images from war-torn places, including Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and Darfur. Through rare and stunning photographs, she reveals the human costs of war and social conflicts. American Photo Magazine named her one of the five most influential photographers of the past 25 years. Ms. Addario's courage and poignancy have also been recognized by Oprah Winfrey’s Power List, National Geographic Women of Vision, and others. Her photographs of the Mississippi Delta brought crucial attention to one of the most precarious healthcare epidemics in the United States.
Ms. Addario's best-selling memoir It’s What I Do has been picked up by Warner Brothers to be made into a film, starring Jennifer Lawrence. We invite you to come hear her stories firsthand.
