The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

On March 9, 2011, the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum hosted a private preview screening of “No Job For a Woman” The Women Who Fought to Report WWII as part of the Intrepid’s Salute to Women programming for Women’s History Month.

The film was introduced by the Intrepid’s president Susan Marenoff-Zausner. Formerly a WWII aircraft carrier, the Intrepid is now a museum and the perfect venue to screen “No Job For a Woman.”

Below is a section of the panel discussion that followed the screening with journalism historian Maurine Beasley, NPR reporter Deborah Amos and war photographer Deborah Copaken Kogan and moderated by the film’s director Michele Midori Fillion.
