Hey kids, If you're are interested in journalism and want to read about a true heroine of the trade, check out Ten Days a Madwoman by Deborah Noyes. It is a book about the first female investigative reporter, Nellie Bly.
Women had no place in journalism in the late 1800s, but that didn’t stop Nellie. She began her extraordinary career by having herself committed to an asylum to expose the horrific conditions there and later reported from the front lines of World War I, circumnavigated the globe in 72 days, and worked to shed light on corruption and the abuse of power. T
Nellie Bly became a household name and raised awareness of political corruption, poverty, and abuses of human rights. Leading an uncommonly full life, Nellie circled the globe in a record seventy-two days and brought home a pet monkey before marrying an aged millionaire and running his company after his death.
