Description


Although it is a story that has been largely untold, American women writers traveled to Europe during World War I as war correspondents and reported on the conflict from the front lines. Their story, absent thus far from the historical record, bears telling. Preceded by a tradition of gender-delineated reporting that kept women in their conventional place, and followed by a radical body of gender-neutral work from women reporters of World War II, the war journalism produced by women at the World War I front is a strong melding of the two and a critical component to understanding both.
