No Job for a Woman: The Women Who Fought to Report WWII影片简介
Journalists Martha Gellhorn, Ruth Cowan and Dickie Chappelle shattered the gender barrier by defying their disbelieving male colleagues—including Gellhorn’s husband at the time, Ernest Hemingway—and covering WWII from ...展开the front lines. That they refused to take assignments asking them to cover the "woman’s angle" (stories about nurses, for example) and demanded access to generals and battlefield manoeuvres is, in retrospect, truly amazing given the profoundly sexist tenor of the time (Gellhorn left Hemingway and his dismissive attitude, never to return). Their courageous story has never been given the treatment it deserves—until now.
Michele Midori Fillion—combining rarely seen archival footage and stills, actors reading the written words of the three main characters and interviews with contemporary female war reporters (Deborah Amos from NPR News, Janine di Giovanni from the Times of London, and Martha Teichner of CBS News, among them)—brings this fascinating story to light.
