The first newspaperwomen were employed to attract female subscribers and advertising revenue, and most led embattled existences, isolated from each other and patronized by their male peers. However, by providing news about women for women they made a distinctly female culture visible within newspapers, chronicling the increasing participation of women in public affairs. Women Who Made the News is the remarkable story of the achievements of those journalists who helped raise women's awareness of each other in the period ending with World War II."--Jacket." ;
