Nobel Laureates Malala Yousafzai and Nadia Murad took their war-torn stories to the world through their books, I am Malala and The Last Girl.  Decades earlier, Lenny in The Ice Candy Man told a tale of three women – her mother, her ayah and herself – caught in the horrors of Partition. But the plight and courage of women in conflict zones – rearing their children; feeding their families; reporting from the battle lines, all facing down intimidation – is not told as often and as prominently as it should be – in fiction and non-fiction. This panel discusses why.
