The first radio programs in an IowaWatch series on Pulitzer Prize-winning Iowa journalism focus on a unique way of handling news reports of a difficult topic in 1990 – rape. The programs, aired as part of the statewide IowaWatch Connection radio program, were on 21 radio stations during the weekends of March 22-24 and April 1-3. IowaWatch.org has posted podcasts of the programs, which feature former Des Moines Register reporter Jane Schorer Meisner’s 1990 newspaper series on the stigma attached to women who are raped. The series, which told the story of an Iowa woman who was raped but willing to talk about it and be named, won The Register the 1991 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Meisner talks in the programs about her reporting, its impact on how people view rape as a crime and how journalists report it.
