Australian women war reporters

Boer War to Vietnam

Jeannine Baker

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Why do Australians know the names of Charles Bean, Alan Moorehead and Chester Wilmot, but not Agnes Macready, Anne Matheson and Lorraine Stumm? This is the hidden story of Australian and New Zealand women war reporters who fought for equality with their male colleagues. These trailblazing women filed stories across the globe from the main conflicts of the twentieth century. Jeannine Baker deftly draws out the links between the experiences of these women and the contemporary realities faced by women journalists of war. This book celebrates the significant contribution made by women reporters who have for too long been overlooked.
