The story of Nel Slis, the remarkable woman who became the Associated Press’ first correspondent in The Hague after WWII. Pioneering a direct and challenging American style of reporting in The Netherlands, she transformed a profession still suffering from the legacy of wartime occupation and was one of the first women to succeed in the male-dominated world of journalism. Just a young woman at the outbreak of WWII, Nel strode forth into an adventurous life around Europe and the wider world from her tough and rather lonely origins in the small westerly Dutch island of Goeree-Overflakkee. From an initial stint as a nurse caring for Finish war-wounded after the Finnish-Russian war, she spent 35 years as a journalist, including a decade in Brussels during a formative period of the EU. Tracing her personal and professional life through her words and her work, Hellcat of The Hague is an affectionate portrait of a tough and tenacious character who evoked both fear and admiration in her peers. “Her aggressive reporting style... intimidated even the toughest of politicians.” Anthony Deutsch, AP obituary 2001

After graduating from Trinity College Dublin in economics and political science, she worked in motivational research, later moving into qualitative research with her own consultancy in Dublin in the 1970's.
