This book tells the inspiring stories of ten women, in all types of journalism, who put themselves at risk to do their jobs. Put all together, their lives also tell the story of journalism itself, its importance to society and the struggle that the women in this field have gone through to do the work that they love and to provide an essential service to society. In an age when many young people's experience of journalism is limited to celebrity gossip and sports scores, Fearless Female Journalists demonstrates the essential role that these women have played, by telling the stories of just a few of those who are willing to stand up to ridicule, make personal sacrifices and even, in some cases, lose their lives to tell the stories that need to be told.

"Crysdale smoothly integrates into the body of the text definitions and explanations of critical vocabulary and concepts unfamiliar to younger readers…Gives readers a new or renewed appreciation of women who have shaped the world in many exceptional ways…May 'The Women's Hall of Fame Series' continue to sound out the unsung heroines. Recommended."
