Women on the Frontline

The stories of how Lara Logan was assaulted in Cairo have reverberated through the journalism realm. Now, Julie Dermansky, a freelance photojournalist who was also in Cairo, delivers her opinion on the risks she takes.

I choose to risk my safety to document their story. The fear of being assaulted is not something I carry around with me. I am not naive. Yes, it could happen to me — in Cairo, in Iraq, where I worked for five months or in New Orleans, where I currently live. But is my choice to be on the frontline of history and share my work with the world.
