Women’s Page Journalists Across the Country
The women’s page journalists were an impressive group from a variety of backgrounds. Many came from traditional journalism backgrounds, although others just wanted to be writers. Some never married while others had children for whom they were the sole providers. Some remained in their sections until retirement or the sections were eliminated. A few rose to management positions in other sections. What is consistent for the hundreds of reporters that populated these sections across the country is that they have been routinely excluded from not just the annals of journalism history but also the histories of their own papers.
