In 2015, veteran journalist Dionne Searcey, her husband and three children left their two-career New York city life behind and moved to Dakar, Senegal where, for the next four years, Dionne served as the West Africa bureau chief for The New York Times. “In Pursuit of Disobedient Women” is not only the story of the inspiring women that Searcey met as she covered two dozen countries for The Times, but also is the personal story of her family as they navigated the unfamiliar structure of a one-career family far away from home.

Dionne Searcey was the West Africa bureau chief for The New York Times from 2015 to 2019, winning the Michael Kelly Award for courage in international reporting, and the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi award for international reporting for her coverage of Boko Haram. She reported on the American economy for The Times and was an investigative reporter and national legal correspondent for the Wall Street Journal. Searcey was raised in Wymore, Nebraska, and now lives with her husband and children in Brooklyn, New York.
