Overview

Women Journalists at Ground Zero tells the rich and moving stories of 24 journalists who reported from New York City, Washington, D.C., and the Pittsburgh area during and following the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Recounting their professional and personal experiences in reporting a disaster of great magnitude, these television, radio, newspaper, magazine, and photojournalists—from local reporters to journalists and producers at major media organizations like CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times, and the Associated Press—show us how the news "happened" and what it takes to cover crisis.

Editorial Reviews

Educational Book Review
Rich and moving stories.
Journalism Studies
The book is a riveting read and reaffirms the need for the reporter as eye-witness. The individual accounts are engrossing and each of the women interviewed presents vividly, but without hyperbole, the enormity of what confronted them. Sylvester and Huffman quite rightly let the stories speak for themselves and should be congratulated on pulling together such compelling accounts.
Media Report To Women
