Pat Mitchell: You have brought us images from the Yemen Times.
And take us through those,
and introduce us to another Yemen.
Nadia Al-Sakkaf: Well, I'm glad to be here.
And I would like to share with you all
some of the pictures that are happening today in Yemen.
This picture shows a revolution
started by women,
and it shows women and men
leading a mixed protest.
The other picture
is the popularity of the real need for change.
So many people are there.
The intensity of the upspring.
This picture shows that the revolution
has allowed opportunities for training,
for education.
These women are learning about first aid
and their rights according to the constitution.
I love this picture.
I just wanted to show
that over 60 percent of the Yemeni population
are 15 years and below.
And they were excluded from decision-making,
and now they are in the forefront of the news,
raising the flag.
English --
you will see, this is jeans
and tights,
and an English expression --
the ability to share with the world
what is going on in our own country.
And expression also,
it has brought talents.
Yemenis are using cartoons
and art,
paintings, comics,
to tell the world and each other
about what's going on.
Obviously, there's always the dark side of it.
And this is just one of the less-gruesome pictures
of the revolution
and the cost that we have to pay.
The solidarity
of millions of Yemenis across the country
just demanding the one thing.
And finally, lots of people are saying
that Yemen's revolution
is going to break the country.
Is it going to be so many different countries?
Is it going to be another Somalia?
But we want to tell the world that, no,
under the one flag, we'll still remain as Yemeni people.
PM: Thank you for those images, Nadia.
And they do, in many ways,
tell a different story
than the story of Yemen,
the one that is often in the news.
And yet, you yourself
defy all those characterizations.
So let's talk about the personal story for a moment.
Your father is murdered.
The Yemen Times already has
a strong reputation in Yemen
as an independent English language newspaper.
How did you then
make the decision and assume the responsibilities
of running a newspaper,
especially in such times of conflict?
NA: Well, let me first warn you
that I'm not the traditional Yemeni girl.
I've guessed you've already noticed this by now.
(Laughter)
In Yemen, most women are veiled
and they are sitting behind doors
and not very much part of the public life.
But there's so much potential.
I wish I could show you my Yemen.
I wish you could see
Yemen through my eyes.
Then you would know
that there's so much to it.
And I was privileged because I was born into a family,
my father would always encourage the boys and the girls.
He would say we are equal.
And he was such an extraordinary man.
And even my mother -- I owe it to my family.
A story:
I studied in India.
And in my third year, I started becoming confused
because I was Yemeni,
but I was also mixing up
with a lot of my friends in college.
And I went back home and I said,
"Daddy, I don't know who I am.
I'm not a Yemeni; I'm not an Indian."
And he said, "You are the bridge."
And that is something I will keep in my heart forever.
So since then I've been the bridge,
and a lot of people have walked over me.
PM: I don't think so. (Laughter)
NA: But it just helps tell
that some people are change agents
in the society.
And when I became editor-in-chief
after my brother actually --
my father passed away in 1999,
and then my brother until 2005 --
and everybody was betting that I will not be able to do it.
"What's this young girl coming in and showing off
because it's her family business," or something.
It was very hard at first.
I didn't want to clash with people.
But with all due respect
to all the men, and the older men especially,
they did not want me around.
It was very hard, you know,
to impose my authority.
But a woman's got to do what a woman's got to do.
(Applause)
And in the first year,
I had to fire half of the men.
(Laughter)
(Applause)
Brought in more women.
Brought in younger men.
And we have a more gender-balanced newsroom today.
The other thing is that it's about professionalism.
It's about proving who you are and what you can do.
And I don't know if I'm going to be boasting now,
but in 2006 alone,
we won three international awards.
One of them is the IPI
Free Media Pioneer Award.
So that was the answer
to all the Yemeni people.
And I want to score a point here,
because my husband is in the room over there.
If you could please stand up, [unclear].
He has been very supportive of me.
(Applause)
PM: And we should point out
that he works with you as well at the paper.
But in assuming this responsibility
and going about it as you have,
you have become a bridge
between an older and traditional society
and the one that you are now creating at the paper.
And so along with changing who worked there,
you must have come up against another positioning
that we always run into, in particular with women,
and it has to do with outside image,
dress, the veiled woman.
So how have you dealt with this
on a personal level
as well as the women who worked for you?
NA: As you know,
the image of a lot of Yemeni women is a lot of black
and covered, veiled women.
And this is true.
And a lot of it is
because women are not able, are not free,
to show their face to their self.
It's a lot of traditional imposing
coming by authority figures
such as the men, the grandparents and so on.
And it's economic empowerment
and the ability for a woman to say,
"I am as much contributing to this family, or more,
than you are."
And the more empowered the women become,
the more they are able to remove the veil, for example,
or to drive their own car
or to have a job or to be able to travel.
So the other face of Yemen
is actually one
that lies behind the veil,
and it's economic empowerment mostly
that allows the woman to just uncover it.
And I have done this throughout my work.
I've tried to encourage young girls.
We started with, you can take it off in the office.
And then after that, you can take it off on assignments.
Because I didn't believe a journalist can be a journalist with --
how can you talk to people if you have your face covered? --
and so on; it's just a movement.
And I am a role model in Yemen.
A lot of people look up to me.
A lot of young girls look up to me.
And I need to prove to them that, yes, you can still be married,
you can still be a mother,
and you can still be respected within the society,
but at the same time,
that doesn't mean you [should] just be one of the crowd.
You can be yourself and have your face.
PM: But by putting yourself personally out there --
both projecting a different image
of Yemeni women,
but also what you have made possible
for the women who work at the paper --
has this put you in personal danger?
NA: Well the Yemen Times, across 20 years,
has been through so much.
We've suffered prosecution;
the paper was closed down more than three times.
It's an independent newspaper,
but tell that to the people in charge.
They think that if there's anything against them,
then we are being an opposition newspaper.
And very, very difficult times.
Some of my reporters were arrested.
We had some court cases.
My father was assassinated.
Today, we are in a much better situation.
We've created the credibility.
And in times of revolution or change like today,
it is very important for independent media to have a voice.
It's very important
for you to go to YemenTimes.com,
and it's very important
to listen to our voice.
And this is probably something
I'm going to share with you
in Western media probably --
and how there's a lot of stereotypes --
thinking of Yemen in one single frame:
this is what Yemen is all about.
And that's not fair.
It's not fair for me; it's not fair for my country.
A lot of reporters come to Yemen
and they want to write a story on Al-Qaeda or terrorism.
And I just wanted to share with you:
there's one reporter that came.
He wanted to do a documentary
on what his editors wanted.
And he ended up writing about a story that even surprised me --
hip hop --
that there are young Yemeni men
who express themselves
through dancing and puchu puchu.
(Laughter)
That thing. (PM: Rap. Break dancing.)
Yeah, break dancing.
I'm not so old.
I'm just not in touch.
(Laughter)
(Applause)
PM: Yes, you are.
Actually, that's a documentary
that's available online; the video's online.
NA: ShaketheDust.org.
PM: "Shake the Dust." (NA: "Shake the Dust.")
PM: ShaketheDust.org.
And it definitely does give a different image of Yemen.
You spoke about the responsibility of the press.
And certainly, when we look
at the ways in which we have separated ourselves from others
and we've created fear
and danger,
often from lack of knowledge,
lack of real understanding,
how do you see
the way that the Western press in particular
is covering this and all other stories out of the region,
but in particular, in your country?
NA: Well there is a saying that says,
"You fear what you don't know,
and you hate what you fear."
So it's about the lack of research, basically.
It's almost, "Do your homework," --
some involvement.
And you cannot do parachute reporting --
just jump into a country for two days
and think that you've done your homework and a story.
So I wish
that the world would know my Yemen,
my country, my people.
I am an example, and there are others like me.
We may not be that many,
but if we are promoted
as a good, positive example,
there will be others -- men and women --
who can eventually bridge the gap --
again, coming to the bridge --
between Yemen and the world
and telling first
about recognition
and then about communication
and compassion.
I think Yemen is going to be
in a very bad situation
in the next two or three years.
It's natural.
But after the two years, which is a price we are willing to pay,
we are going to stand up again on our feet,
but in the new Yemen
with a younger and more empowered people --
democratic.
(Applause)
PM: Nadia, I think you've just given us
a very different view of Yemen.
And certainly you yourself and what you do
have given us a view of the future
that we will embrace
and be grateful for.
And the very best of luck to you.
YemenTimes.com.
NA: On Twitter also.
PM: So you are plugged in.
(Applause)
