The Women Who Fought to Report WWII
A film by Michèle Midori Fillion
Before World War II, war reporting was considered
NO JOB FOR A WOMAN
When American female reporters fought and won access to cover the war, there was another battle to fight: Women would be banned from the frontlines, prevented from covering Front Page stories, and assigned “woman’s angle” stories. Instead, they turned their second-class assignment into a new kind of war story: one that was more intimate yet more revealing.
