Alex Crawford, frontline reporter and mother

Submitted by on August 28, 2011 – 3:31 pmOne Comment

Good on Alex Crawford, the Sky News reporter out in Libya reporting first-hand on the terrifying events in Tripoli.

On Saturday, in a satellite link with the Edinburgh International Television Festival, she hit back at those suggesting she should be at home looking after her four children.

Crawford said the notion is “really insulting and very, very sexist,” especially when her colleague, Stuart Ramsay, who has three children, does not have to deal with such questions.

It’s a dangerous job, but that doesn’t mean that only men should do it.
