Book of the Week: ‘Our Women on the Ground’

'Our Women on the Ground'

About the book: We are used to the fact that media coverage of the Arab world is rather dominated by Western journalists, usually leaving us with a very particular version of the news. If you would like to get to know the other, perhaps more reliable or at least more authentic perspective, this book will be of interest to you. ‘Our Women on the Ground’ is a collection of essays, written by Arab female journalists, who depict the reality behind the scenes of reporting from dangerous and conflicted places of the world. They talk about the bravery, challenges, advantages and breaking stereotypes of Arab women. A must-read not just for journalists. Also, the book contains a foreword by Christiane Amanpour which is already enough of a reason to take a look at it!
