  • Q&A: NYT's Lynsey Addario on Libya sexual assault – Committee to Protect Journalists

    You know, I actually wanted to shame the Libyans. It’s very important that they understand how embarrassing, how gross it is, and what a bad name it gives to other Muslim countries. I’ve gotten emails from translators and drivers all around the Middle East just saying, “I’m so sorry that this happened to you,” and “I’m so embarrassed that this has happened to you. We are not like that.” Libyans need to be a little more introspective about what kind of society produces these kinds of people. So when I went forward I wanted it to get out that this kind of behavior, which is just unacceptable, is going on.

  • Lynsey Addario: "It's What I Do"


    I was reading the feedback to the account that Anthony, Tyler, Steve and I wrote. (“Four Times Journalists Held Captive in Libya Faced Days of Brutality.”) Some comments said: “How dare a woman go to a war zone?” and “How could The New York Times let a woman go to the war zone?” To me, that’s grossly offensive. This is my life, and I make my own decisions. If a woman wants to be a war photographer, she should. It’s important. Women offer a different perspective. We have access to women on a different level than men have, just as male photographers have a different relationship with the men they’re covering.

    It was pretty scary. The journalist’s instinct is to want to go as far forward as possible. But our drivers refused. Two drivers today refused to go forward. They’re drivers; they’re not journalists. So a lot of them just said, “We’re not going to take you forward.”

    On Friday, from the American Hospital in Istanbul, Lynsey Addario sent the following message to Michele McNally, an assistant managing editor. Hi just got to turkey and am in american hosp here. What a gigantic difference from pakistan! Its like I’ve spent the last five days in a cave! They have me strapped up in this figure 8 sling, trying to pull my bones apart. Doctors now are discussing surgery. Collar bones banging into each other and it is sooooooooo painful. The Times is gathering a fund to give to the six children of the driver, Raza Khan, for whom he was the sole provider.
