This unique book combines a brief, comprehensive history of women in the American newspaper business over the last one hundred years with a sharp assessment of their present status. Kay Mills describes how today's women journalists have reached their present positions and argues that the increased presence of women reporters is having an important impact on the kind of news that appears in daily papers.
