paperback    ISBN 13: 9781529111675 | ISBN 10: 1529111676

Nineteen Arab women journalists speak out about what it's like to report on their changing homelands in this first-of-its-kind essay collection.
 
A growing number of intrepid Arab and Middle Eastern sahafiyat - female journalists - are working tirelessly to shape nuanced narratives about their changing homelands, often risking their lives on the front lines of war. Here, nineteen of these women tell us, in their own words, about what it's like to report on conflicts that (quite literally) hit close to home.
 
Their daring and heartfelt stories, told here for the first time, shatter stereotypes about the region's women and provide an urgently needed perspective on a part of the world that is frequently misunderstood. With a foreword by CNN chief international anchor Christiane Amanpour.
 
Including essays by:
 
Donna Abu-Nasr, Aida Alami, Hannah Allam, Jane Arraf, Lina Attalah, Nada Bakri, Shamael Elnoor, Zaina Erhaim, Asmaa al-Ghoul, Hind Hassan, Eman Helal, Zeina Karam, Roula Khalaf, Nour Malas, Hwaida Saad, Amira Al-Sharif, Heba Shibani, Lina Sinjab, and Natacha Yazbeck
