In addition to having worked on stories that have had an impact  and made a difference — all 46 women journalists in this list have one thing in common: They are all winners of The Chameli Devi Jain Award for Outstanding Women Mediapersons.

That is not all. Their stories of reportage have now been compiled in a book edited by veteran media professionals Latika Padgaonkar and Shubha Singh. Making News, Breaking News, Her Own Way is highly recommended reading for not only journalists, but also media students, especially young women, who aspire to be journalists.
  • I have already bought a copy for the Commits library. But this is a book that you need to buy, place on your bookshelf, and read every time you need a fresh burst of inspiration.
