Description: This project is divided into three phases, demarked by two landmark events, World War II and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These two events mark turning points in the history of women in journalism: the first because it opened the doors for women in the profession, and the second because it was the wedge for full equality within the newsroom. The first stage of the project, entitled "pioneers", consists of interviews with women who attained standing in the profession prior to World War II, the second with those who entered journalism during the War. The third phase consists of interview with women who entered the profession in the 1950s and 1960s and who were active in various attempts to open the profession to women, either through legal actions or other collective actions.
