  • 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
  • A refreshing insight...our knowledge of the Middle East is richer and more nuanced thanks to these courageous women; it is long past time that we looked at things from their perspectives.

    Bethan McKernan, Guardian
  • Showcases journalism at its bravest. Determination, grit and humour shine through the writing.

    Lindsey Hilsum, Observer Books of the Year
  • Zahra Hankir’s pioneering collection is required reading... An antidote to the endless stream of 'clickbait' and 'content', this is journalism at its most honest and reflective – a multi-dimensional narrative about what it means to be a female journalist in the Arab world and in the West... Hankir shines a light on the strength of those who have reported on war and womanhood and invites us to 'listen to what they have to say'. I urge you to accept her invitation.

    Sarah Collins, The Arts Desk Books of the Year
  • A stirring, provocative and well-made new anthology . . . a book that banishes all manner of silences... that rewrites the hoary rules of the foreign correspondent playbook, deactivating the old clichés.

    Dwight Garner, New York Times
