I knew Global Sisters Report was doing great work when I became managing editor in August. So when editor Mary Lou Nolan asked me to compile a blog post of 10 noteworthy stories from GSR writers in 2015, I jumped at the chance to talk to our writers and read through our archives to create this list (which is, I should note, in no particular order).
Did you miss one of these stories the first time around? Now would be the perfect chance to read it. Better yet, read all 10!
1. Hidden in plain sight by Dawn Araujo-Hawkins, published Oct. 19
As I was settling into my role at GSR, Dawn was already several months into reporting and writing an intense story about human trafficking in the United States, centering on a South Dakota where dairy and mining industries intersect in particular with a vulnerable population of Native American women. The result is the perfect example of a #longread, diving into the history of human trafficking in the United States and how efforts to combat trafficking have evolved along with the Internet. And, of course, she spoke with sisters, who have long been involved in this issue.
