Irris Makler - My View of Women as a Reporter in Israel
Author and journalist, Irris Makler will explore the types of stories she covers and what it shows about the position of women on both sides of the line. She will also talk about the women she interviewed for her new book, 'Just Add Love'.
Currently based in Jerusalem, Irris has lived and worked in Moscow and London as well. She was one of the first journalists into Afghanistan after 9-11 and spent most of the next decade following the War on Terror around the globe. She has covered the Arab spring, the Palestinian Intifada, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. From Jerusalem, she reports across Israel, Gaza and the West Bank.
For the past four years she’s been recording the stories of Holocaust survivors and photographing them cooking with their grandchildren. She tested the recipes along with women in 5 test kitchens, writing up the results in a blog and eventually forming the basis of her new book.
