Front Page Girls: Women Journalists in American Culture & Fiction, 1880-1930. By Jean Marie Lutes
By the time a 1901 Ladies Home Journal article asked "Is the Newspaper Office the Place for a Girl?" it was almost too late to bother posing the question - they were already a visible subset of the nation's newspaper journalists. They were referred to as "front-page girls" in the 1936 history of Ladies of the Press, but their stories didn't always make the front page. This paperback book has 226 pages and measures 6" x 9".
