No Job For a Woman: The Women Who Fought to Report WWII is a 61-minute historical documentary that focuses on the lives and work of wire service reporter Ruth Cowan, magazine reporter Martha Gellhorn, and war photographer Dickey Chapelle.

To bring the story to life, director Michele Midori Fillion combines rarely seen archival footage and stills, actors reading the written words of the three main characters and interviews with contemporary female war reporters.
