At the Newseum in Washington, D.C., the names of Shifa Gardi and three other Kurdish journalists were added to the wall of journalists killed on the job.
"She was known as a role model in Kurdish news reporting who had broken barriers as her station's lead reporter on the military campaign to push the Islamic State out of Iraq," Lata Nott, the direcotor of the First Amendment Center, said during Shifa's induction.
For this year, the names of 18 journalists will be inscribed on the wall.
"I worked a lot in Iraqi Kurdistan and I was aware that she was a very brave journalist. I did a lot of work in Mosul as well, and I just remember hearing that she had died and being very affected by that ... that a brave journalist and a brave young woman who was doing ground-breaking work as a woman in northern Iraq, that she had lost her life," CBS correspondent Holly Williams told Rudaw.
Annually, 800,000 people visit the Newseum. Any journalist who has lost their life since 1837 due to their profession has their name and their agency's name inscribed on a glass wall.
"We also tell the stories of the individual journalists, the 18 journalists whom we honored this year," Newseum's Patty Rhule told Rudaw.
Rudaw’s Shifa Gardi was remembered by her colleagues on February 25, one year after her death.
Gardi, who was reporting on the war against ISIS in western Mosul for her daily program Focus Mosul, was killed near war-torn city on February 25, 2017. Her cameraman Younis Mustafa was injured in the same attack.
Gardi was killed by an ISIS bomb planted on the edge of the Khasfa pit, a mass burial site south of the city. A number of Hashd al-Shaabi fighters accompanying her to the spot were also killed and others wounded.
Syria and Iraq are among the top four deadliest countries for journalists and media workers, according to the 2017 World Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders (RSF).
The number of female journalist killed in the course of their work has doubled in the past year.
