Synopsis: This innovative, highly regarded book tells the story of U.S. women in journalism to the present time—in part, in their own words.
From the Publisher: Taking Their Place is an innovative, highly regarded history of U.S. women in journalism to the present time — told, in part, in their own words. It begins with Colonial-era women working in family-run print shops; shows women gaining public roles in the 1800s, publishing abolitionist and suffrage newspapers; and describes their struggles and achievements breaking into news reporting, war correspondence, political commentary, and broadcasting. Later chapters describe the rise of feminist journalism and challenges to media-industry employment and reporting practices.
The text is intertwined with a rich array of historical documents — first-hand materials that bring history to life. Among these are abolitionist and suffrage editorials; 19th-century descriptions of newspaper staff reactions to women in newsrooms; reports from the Russian Revolution and World War II; Katharine Graham’s description of Watergate and the Washington Post; women reporters’ descriptions of the challenges they faced in Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War; oral history interviews; legal documents; and industry guidelines for avoiding sexism in news coverage.
The new edition is carefully updated to reflect current issues and events. Expanded commentary and new illustrations enhance the reader’s sense of context and connections.
The first edition of this book was named an Outstanding Title by Choice (a publication of the Association of College & Research Libraries).
