From Society Page to Front Page: Unsung Women of the Nebraska Press

In the 1880’s Nebraska’s women journalists included Willa Cather, a major suffragist publisher and a crusader for food safety. Since then, Nebraska has produced women White House correspondents, war correspondents, “Rosie the Reporters,” noted weekly editors, significant broadcasters and baby boomers who broke the barriers to the front page.
