  • History: Even though laws prohibited women from performing journalistic tasks, this did not stop them from finding ways to be editors, reporters, and analysts prior to the 1890's.  As a pioneer in her field, Nellie Bly (May 5, 1864 - January 27, 1922) was best known for her record breaking trip around the world that took her only 72 days. She also went as far as to fake insanity in order to expose a mental institute for brutality and neglect. Best known for her 1904 book The History of the Standard Oil Company, Ida M. Tarbell (November 5, 1857 - January 6, 1944) was a journalist who led the way for investigative reporting we still see today.  Ethel L. Payne (August 14, 1911 - May 28, 1991) became the first female African-American commentator for a national network.  Known as the "First Lady of the Black Press," she reported on the civil rights movement in the 50's and 60's.  Earning her masters degree from the Columbia University School of Journalism, Marguerite Higgins (September 3, 1920 - January 3, 1966) was best known as a war correspondent covering World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
