About this talk: Sally Armstrong's interest lies in stories of women and girls in zones of conflict -- Bosnia, Somalia, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Congo, and more. She goes to these places to not only report on these stories, but also to help. "I love stories that involve me emotionally, but also move you to act," she says. Armstrong discusses the direct link between the economy and the status of women, rape as a strategy of war, and the difference between misogyny and culture. Watch her compelling talk here.
