Mary Beard & Christina Lamb

Our Bodies, Their Battlefield, Christina Lamb’s searing book, gives voice to women in conflicts across the world. This is, unfortunately, by no means a new tragedy. Mary Beard’s own research into ancient Rome recognises rape as a weapon of war two thousand years ago, whilst her Women & Power: A Manifesto has been heralded as a feminist rallying cry. In a conversation chaired by Kalpanee Gunawardana, two highly regarded writers confront the devastating global impact of rape throughout time.
