This week’s podcast was prompted by an event held by the International News Safety Institute, to mark the launch of their new publication ‘No Woman’s Land’, which addresses the issues facing women journalists reporting from the frontline across the world.
After the event Journalism.co.uk spoke to a number of women journalists – those who have experienced life as a local journalist in a conflict zone as well as the women in senior roles on international news desks in the UK – to find out their past experiences and assess where we are today and what still needs to be done.
- Shahira Amin, Egyptian freelance journalist and former journalist for Nile TV
- Liliane Landor, controller of language services for Global News at the BBC
- Florentine Kwizera, producer on the Great Lakes service on the BBC World Service
- Sarah Whitehead, head of international news at Sky News
