About the Show
“Rape”, writes Christina Lamb, one of the world’s foremost war correspondents who has worked in war and combat zones for over thirty years, “is the cheapest weapon known to man.” In her latest harrowing and profoundly moving book, Our Bodies, Their Battlefields: What War Does to Women, Christina documents the terrible crimes committed against women as an instrument of war. With its sensitive interviews with contemporary victims across many countries, and tenacious and empathetic reporting, Our Bodies, Their Battlefields writes women into the history of war.
