Written by Joy Crysdale.
Published by Second Story Press, 2010.


This collection features ten female journalists from Canada and around the world.

Fearless Female Journalists relates the inspirational biographies of women who risked everything—including their lives—to bring us the world's stories. Whether reporting from the front lines or the anchor desk, they pushed the boundaries of print, radio, TV, and internet journalism.

By reading about their lives we learn the history of modern journalism. From abolitionist Mary Ann Shadd Cary and stunt reporter Nellie Bly, to feminist Doris Anderson and pioneering photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White. On to TV legends Barbara Frum and Katie Couric, and sports reporter Pam Oliver. Learn about murdered Russian war correspondent Anna Politkovskaya, courageous Afghan journalist Farida Nekzad, and South African Thembi Ngubane, who recorded her own fight against AIDS. Their personal stories will inspire you as much as their intrepid journalism.
