Abstract:

An eBook short. From Katharine Graham's Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Personal History, a stirring narrative of how the legendary publisher of the Washington Post became a feminist. With an introduction from her granddaughter, Katharine Weymouth, publisher of the Post until 2014. Katharine Graham was the newspaper mogul who piloted the Washington Post through the crises of the Pentagon Papers and Watergate: but first she had to overcome the harsh expectations of a male-dominated industry, and her harshest critic of all'herself. Inheriting ownership of the paper from her father, and assuming its leadership in 1963 after the death of her husband, Philip, Graham found herself the only woman in a man's world'a world, however, that was beginning to change. From Georgetown suppers to board meetings, from The Second Sex to Gloria Steinem, this is the refreshingly honest account of how the most powerful woman in Washington came into her own.
