In a great slide-show feature today, Al-Monitor has compiled a list of 16 female journalists to watch who are reporting from the front lines in the Middle East. They asked each of them what it’s like to be a female journalist in one of the most dangerous regions in the world and whether gender has played a role in their reporting.

The list includes NPR’s Deborah Amos, WaPo‘s Liz Sly, and Al-Monitor’s Laura Rozen and Barbara Slavin.
