The International News Safety Institute launched a publication titled “No Woman’s Land: On the Frontlines with Female Reporters” in time for International Women’s Day.
The book, sparked by the sexual assault of Lara Logan last year in Tahrir Square, includes a collection of 40 stories of the experiences of women journalists. INSI calls this effort the first book “solely dedicated to the safety of women journalists.”
In addition to Logan, contributors include several BBC correspondents such as Lyse Doucet, Caroline Wyatt and Frances Harrison, as well as Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin, al-Jazeera’s Zeina Awad, Somali investigative journalist Fatuma Noor, and countless others.
Proceeds of the project go toward the group’s safety training for women journalists.
Here are a few write-ups on the project including excerpts and pieces by some of the books’ contributors.
