Kate Woodsome is a columnist, producer and director at Washington Post Opinions. Her work explores the motives for — and impacts of — inequity, abuses of power and social division. She was part of the team that won the 2022 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for coverage of the Jan. 6 insurrection. Pivoting away from Trumpism after the Capitol attack, Kate is now focusing on America's mental health crisis and the need for collective care. A Murrow Award-winning journalist, Kate chooses her medium, be it written column or short documentary, based on what the story and its subjects demand. In the past year, her films "Bring Them Home" (director/producer) and "Fight or Flight" (consulting producer) screened at the Big Sky Film Festival and DOC NYC. She previously managed a live global affairs program at Al Jazeera English and spent her early career as a print and radio reporter in Cambodia, Cuba and Hong Kong.
