Christina Lamb – Our Bodies Their Battlefield
With the recent, devastating and ongoing tragedy of Afghanistan, we have invited Christina to talk about her book: Our Bodies Their Battlefield – a searing and angry reckoning of the scale of assault against women as a weapon of war. Christina Lamb has worked in combat zones for over 30 years moving between conflicts that affect the livelihood and wellbeing of all women. Her earlier book Farewell Kabul considers the longest war fought by the United States in its history and by Britain since the Hundred Years War. Will the current plight of the nation under the Taliban regime lead to more worldwide terrorism? Christina and Malala Yousafzai, Winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, combined to write I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban, a fascinating insight into what has gone before and what could re-ignite.
