RAD is celebrating Women’s History Month with a series of guest posts featuring stories from the  #NPRchives handpicked by #NPRwomen.

Katie Daugert is RAD’s Training Lead and the team’s longest-tenured researcher and data analyst. She remembers her contribution to this 2012 report: “With Topless Protests, ‘Sextremists’ March In Paris.”

As a researcher embedded in NPR’s newsroom, I sat with the staff of ‘All Things Considered’ for several years. It was such a delight to be asked to record the English voice-over for Sister Marie Veronique, a Dominican nun who posed for pictures with topless FEMEN protesters in Paris, 2012. I was honored to be a part of Eleanor Beardsley’s excellent work!
