Here’s this week's episode's ethics challenge:
A 30-year old, attractive, fluent English speaking woman from central Africa published a memoir detailing her abduction and forced marriage as a teenager. Subsequently, she escaped and found refuge in America, where she distinguished herself in college and graduate school. As a speaker and writer, she has brought attention to the plight of child-brides and child-soldiers in Africa.
Through her story, she has raised millions of dollars, generated mass-media attention, and catalyzed international efforts that are making a dramatic, positive difference in the lives of thousands of children.
You discover that her own personal story is a lie. However, you believe that she was motivated not by personal profit or fame, but rather by the belief that she was uniquely positioned to motivate interest in a cause that had gone largely ignored… which she clearly has done.
Will you expose her story as fraudulent?
