Phenomenal Women is a series moderated by Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing that invites women who have risen to the top of their professions to share their stories – from scientists researching how our brains work and athletes coaching major league sports to journalists transforming newsrooms, to artists reclaiming women’s voices. 

Legendary journalists Margaret Sullivan and Eileen McNamara talk about their decades in journalism, where they have battled sexism, broken glass ceilings and witnessed the decline of trust in the news media — and offer their thoughts on how to regain that trust. Radio Boston host Tiziana Dearing moderates.

Following the conversation, join us for the afterparty! Margaret Sullivan will be signing copies of her new book “Newsroom Confidential: Lessons (and Worries) from an Ink-stained Life.” Plus:

  • Enjoy a reception with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
  • Network with your fellow attendees.
  • Win some WBUR swag to take home.
