Before World War II, war reporting was considered NO JOB FOR A WOMAN.  But 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.

“No Job For a Woman”: The Women Who Fought to Report WWII tells this story through the lives and work of wire service reporter Ruth Cowan, magazine reporter Martha Gellhorn, and war photographer Dickey Chapelle.
