Reporting Conflict While Female

Esther Htusan brings a unique voice to muckraking. The first Burmese to win a Pulitzer Prize, she is from that nation's Kachin minority and has reported at length on conflict in her native Myanmar. She was part of AP’s all-female Pulitzer Prize-winning team for a series on slavery in Southeast Asia’s fishing industry. In this interview, Esther talks about the safety measures she follows while reporting conflicts and the struggle of women journalists in Myanmar.
