This article takes the saddening experience of Ms. Logan and looks more broadly at the issues that female journalists face in war zones. An important reminder of the dangers that not only journalists but women more broadly face when sexual violence is used as a tool of war.

“Women can cover the fighting just as well as men, depending on their courage. More important, they also do a pretty good job of covering what it’s like to live in a war, not just die in one. Without female correspondents in war zones, the experiences of women there may be only a rumor.”
