Summary, etc.:
"Chris Dubbs tells the dramatic stories of more than thirty women who traveled to Europe to write about World War I for America's newspapers and magazines"-- Provided by publisher.
When World War I began, war reporting was a thoroughly masculine bastion of journalism. But that did not stop dozens of women reporters from stepping into the breach, defying gender norms and official restrictions to establish roles for themselves-- and to write new kinds of narratives about women and war. Dubbs tells of more than thirty American women who worked as war reporters. The stories by these journalists brought in women from the periphery of war and made them active participants-- fully engaged and equally heroic, if bearing different burdens and making different sacrifices. Their experiences also brought them into contact with social transformations, political unrest, labor conditions, campaigns for women's rights, and the rise of revolutionary socialism. -- adapted from jacket
