Lara Logan rupe tăcerea
(Despre re-victimizarea Larei Logan am scris aici.)
Pentru 60 Minutes (CBS), Lara Logan a dat primul (și singurul) interviu în legătură cu cele întâmplate pe 11 februarie, în Egipt.
+ 60 Minutes Overtime: After the assault: Lara Logan comes home
Logan: I had no idea how endemic that it is so rife, so widespread, that so many Egyptian men admit to sexual harassing women and think it’s completely acceptable. In fact, blame the women for it.
Pelley: Why are you telling this story now?
Logan: One thing that I am extremely proud of that I didn’t intend is when my female colleagues stood up and said that I’d broken the silence on what all of us have experienced but never talk about.
Pelley: What did they mean by that?
Logan: That women never complain about incidents of sexual violence because you don’t want someone to say, „Well women shouldn’t be out there.” But I think there are a lot of women who experience these kinds of things as journalists and they don’t want it to stop their job because they do it for the same reasons as me – they are committed to what they do. They are not adrenaline junkies you know, they’re not glory hounds, they do it because they believe in being journalists.
