Responsible travel writing

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 9:49 am on 7 January 2019

New Zealand writer Mary Jane Walker often travels to danger zones, alone. She wants to share her experiences with others, but says she's been struggling with how she can I write responsibly about places I've been to? 

She doesn't want to betray the people who've helped her while at the same time wanting to give accurate accounts of her experiences. Mary Jane also has to be very aware of not putting herself at risk through catching the attention of the authorities.
