#Okay100Women

KAREN ATTIAH

OkayAfrica's 100 Women celebrates African women who are making waves, shattering ceilings, and uplifting their communities.

Nigerian-Ghanaian-American Karen Attiah is a force in the online journalism world. She's the global opinion editor at Washington Post, which is a grand title that speaks for itself—and she lives up to it. With her articulate, opinionated, thoughtful pieces, she is one of many voices that pushes the boundaries of journalism and urges us to think critically about our world—even if some commenters strongly disagree with her views and reports.




Attiah covers international and national politics, social justice, race and gender for The Post. Her work has also appeared in Salon, Huffington Post, ABC News, Voices of America and many other publications.
