Product Details


“The authors are a who’s who of excellent women writers who have done some of the best journalism in the Arab world.”
Book Riot

“With steely courage and pens of fire, these sahafiyat—Arab female journalists—tell the stories of their country’s conflicts, providing rigor, depth and insight few outside commenters could match.”
—Molly Crabapple, author of Drawing Blood and illustrator of Brothers of the Gun

“This dazzling book is so many things at once: a social primer on conflict in the Arab world; visceral narration that accommodates multiple allegiances, histories, and frames of inquiry; and a work of challenging reportage that refuses to fetishize risk and presents people living with conflict as humans, not simply subjects of violence. It elegantly demonstrates how to tell stories with humility, affection, and truthfulness.”
—Azadeh Moaveni, author of Lipstick Jihad and Honeymoon in Tehran

“The journalists in this book have demonstrated the highest professional achievements and courage. . . . Without them, the stories of today and tomorrow will remain only partly told.”
—Christiane Amanpour, from the Foreword
