Overview

"This book tells the inspiring stories of ten women, in all types of journalism, who put themselves at risk to do their jobs. Put all together, their lives also tell the story of journalism itself, its importance to society and the struggle that the women in this field have gone through to do the work that they love and to provide an essential service to society. In an age when many young people's experience of journalism is limited to celebrity gossip and sports scores, Fearless Female Journalists demonstrates the essential role that these women have played, by telling the stories of just a few of those who are willing to stand up to ridicule, make personal sacrifices and even, in some cases, lose their lives to tell the stories that need to be told."

    Reviewed by YA Librarian Elizabeth for Teens Read Too

    This book contains short, interesting biographies of important women who have a place in history, but whom you may have missed. Women like Nellie Bly pretended to be insane to write about the conditions in New York 's notorious mental institution - "The Woman's Lunatic Asylum on Blackwell's Island." Or Margaret Bourke-White, whose photos of the holocaust were used as evidence against Nazi leaders after the war. All of the women journalists fought for what they believe in and took enormous risks. FEARLESS FEMALE JOURNALISTS covers women from different parts of the world, past and present, who help shape the world by giving a voice to important issues like the holocaust, women's roles in society, the Taliban, cancer, and more.
