Women war reporters focus on life behind the lines: Christina Lamb at #JLF

Media has been traditionally male-dominated, war reporting doubly so. But this never proved an impediment to award-winning foreign correspondent Christina Lamb. In a career that has spanned roughly 30 years, she has reported from some of the world's most violent and dangerous conflict zones. From Afghanistan to Pakistan and Iraq, Lamb has gone where few dared tread. She's also the author of the recently launched Farewell Kabul, and the co-author of Malala Yousafzai's autobiography I Am Malala. We caught up with her on the sidelines of the Jaipur Litfest, to hear more about her experiences as a woman in conflict zones and her time with Malala.
