WPCF Oral History Project

"Women In Journalism"

This award-winning, nationwide oral history project includes comprehensive, full-life interviews with women journalists who have made significant contributions to society through careers in journalism since the 1920s. The nearly sixty interviews provide an important documentary record of the experiences of women in seeking acceptance in journalism and the impact that this development has had on the reporting and editing of the nation's news. The interviews also document changes in the roles, expectations, opportunities, and obstacles for women in American society during this century. The oral history transcripts provide a large body of primary source material for scholars, students, teachers, and those who hope to make journalism a career.

The "Women in Journalism" project is the 1998 recipient of OHMAR's Forrest C. Pogue Award.
