Women War Correspondents with Patricia DelGiorno at Rogers Memorial Library
November 13, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
In the 1940s, women journalists had to fight to cover World War II, and although they were barred from combat zones, women correspondents were determined to go where the action was. This presentation will highlight the experiences of the women who broke the rules and defied the notion that war coverage was the exclusive province of male writers. That defiance and the quality of their reporting opened the doors to women covering wars today. We will focus on women who covered World War II, Viet Nam and middle-eastern conflicts.
