State Department Senior Adviser To Speak At RWC

State Department Senior Adviser Susan Craig Hovanac will speak on "Women, War, and Reconstruction: Iraq, Afghanistan, and Beyond" at Raymond Walters College in the college theater at 7 p.m., April 6, 2004. Her talk is free and open to the public.

A Senior Foreign Service Officer since 1976, Ms. Hovanec has served in Lebanon, Croatia, Yugoslavia, Mexico, and during the Croatian and Bosnian War in the Balkans. As the only Public Affairs Officer in the Balkans, Ms. Hovanec was recruited by Madeleine Albright, then U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., to be her Balkan watcher and press officer in D.C. After 9/11 Afghanistan dominated all of her assignment. War and post-conflict countries have become her specialty along with supporting the development and implementation of a pro-women's foreign policy agenda.

The event is part of RWC's International Issues Speakers Series and is sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Greater Cincinnati, Raymond Walters College, Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights, Women's City Club, League of Women Voters, Northern Kentucky International Trade Association and the University of Cincinnati Center for Women's Studies.
