Hala has again been named to the list of 100 most powerful Arab women, coming in at No. 40:

"CNN-anchor Hala Gorani is a prominent journalist in the Arab World. Known for her hard-hitting news reports in the region, she has now covered every single Middle Eastern country, and a large number of major events from the 2006 Lebanon-Israel war to last year’s Egyptian revolution. Though she was born in Seattle, Washington, Gorani has a Middle Eastern background, with parents from Syria. Gorani now anchors CNN’s International Desk, but she has previously hosted shows like Inside the Middle East."

“No Woman’s Land - On the Frontlines with Female Reporters”

On March 8, 2012 a book, “No Woman’s Land - On the Frontlines with Female Reporters” by the The International News Safety Institute, an organization devoted to the safety of journalists, will be released.

From the INSI page:

“No Woman’s Land - On the Frontlines with Female Reporters” is a unique collection of articles written by 40 women from around the world who work in the news media. They have covered conflict, disasters, corruption and civil unrest and come from more than a dozen countries as far afield as Mexico and Burma, Russia and Somalia, Indonesia and Egypt.

Other contributors include the BBC’s Lyse Doucet and Caroline Wyatt, CNN’s Hala Gorani, Fox News’s Jennifer Griffin, Al Jazeera’s Zeina Awad and the former Egyptian state TV anchor Shahira Amin."

The idea for the book arose from the attack on CBS correspondent Lara Logan during her reporting from Tahrir Square in Egypt last year. She has written the foreword for “No Woman’s Land”.

Proceeds will go towards INSI safety projects for women journalists around the world. The book may be purchased at the INSI website or at
