Lines of demarcation

Australian women war reporters in Europe during the Second World War

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article examines the diverse experiences of three Australian women journalists who covered the Second World War in the European military theatre. It analyses the ways that military policy regarding the accreditation and control of women reporters reinforced gendered understandings of journalism and war. Despite this, the article shows that Australian women journalists reported the war in a variety of ways that extended beyond the home front and the 'woman's angle'.
