Women Come to the Front

Journalists, Photographers, and Broadcasters During WWII

Library of Congress | Apr 20, 2021

Women Come to the Front: Journalists, Photographers and Broadcasters of World War II spotlights eight US women who succeeded in “coming to the front” during the war. By examining private papers and photographs drawn primarily from the Library of Congress collections, students may better understand how women secured a place for themselves in the workplace, in the newsroom, and on the battlefield. This site is most readily applicable to US history courses, but may be put to comparative use in world history surveys, as students investigate global roles and rights of women during WWII.
