Early Women Newspaper Reporters

You may not know, but I am also a writer. Recently I have become fascinated with newspapers from the turn of the century (the Century before this one. :-)

This is a fantastic article called Sob Sisters: The Image of the Female Journalist in Popular Cultures by Joe Saltzman, Director, Image of the Journalist in Popular Cultures (IJPC). As you read the article you will learn that Sob Sisters refers to women reporters.  They were usually given the stories that would make you sob.

Read for yourself and enjoy!
